As a general practice, it is not a good idea to multi-task an auto reverser unless it is pretty near impossible for it to have to contend with two reversing tasks simultaneously.  It can get confused with conflicting signals coming from two devices or areas...such as a turntable that is not already auto-reversing (many are) and a return loop.

Can't help with your decoder question, sorry.

I haven't seen a lot of guys here who use MRC but now that I've said that they should start to come out of the woodwork to prove me wrong. Big Smile [:D]

I've seen some on here advise going to the MRC Yahoo Group for MRC specific help and support.  You might want to try that as well?

Dorry I can't be of more help but I am just a DCC "wannabe". Blush [:I]  Wink [;)]
