Great demo. I just started using the Lokprgrammer myself, very simple to use.

That's some good information. I just figured out how to use my LokProgrammer and made use of your information about changing the horn and bell sounds. Thanks!

Great episode.

I have a question about upgrading a LokSound decoder using the LokProgrammer. Does this reset all the decoder CVs back to default?

Let's say the locomotive had already been tuned, and I only wanted a new feature such as Full Throttle. Would I have to retune the locomotive everytime I upgraded its decoder?
