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!

Matt:

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?

Perhaps Im doing something  wrong, but i am trying to follow along on my computer and go through the website as the video is playing. What is comming up is nothing like what is shown in the video. Perhaps the website has been changed since this video was posted, but it doesnt help me if i cant reproduce what you are trying to do on the video.

We're not understanding what you are trying to do exactly. What do you mean by "going through the website as the video is playing" ...? And what are you finding that is nothing like the video?

Can you please explain step-by-step what you are trying to do ... like this:

1. Click Play video on this video (give URL)

2. Open another tab and try to go to this URL: (give URL)

3. The results don't match.

Or something like that ... ???
