Okay....following this with interest. Novice in this area Hopefully I'm on base here...........?
I have the MTH WIFI installed and working well.
I have a Lionel Sensor track installed with an SER 2.
The 9 pin serial port on the TIU is of course available. (My TIU is new - Rev L)
However, I have a TPC 400 using the 9 pin serial port on the SER 2.
Therefore I cannot hook up the TIU 9 pin to the SER 2 - 9 pin.
I believe an MTH 50-1032 is recommended between the TIU and the SER 2.
How would I solve this?
Get a second SER2 for the TIU or use the screw connections for the TPC and 9pin for the TIU. The SER2 is the least expensive LCS module so that may be the easiest route. Just add it to the PDI buss.
From the Lionel Manual for the SER2...
You may use either the three screw terminal connector or the DB9 connector
on one SER2. You may use both the DB9 and the comm/output screw terminals
simultaneously. However, if your configuration requires using the SER2's INPUT
screw terminal as well as the output, you cannot simultaneously use the DB9
connector. In this case, add an additional SER2 module to your layout.
