Thanks patternpilot!  I was looking at the tablets also but I ultimately decided to go with the phone which turns out has a larger screen than my iphone, so it seems BIGGER to me. :-)

Now if there is only a way to get the Android version of the Premium MTH APP upgrade to work without paying for it again since I already paid and have the iOS version?

We can dream... Apple & Google will never let that happen. They want to control those in-app purchases and get their piece of the pie.

Thank you for proving it! :-)    Do you think adding a bit of delay (trim pot) on the WD might work?  I realize it would still have to be less than the the PS wait time to prevent them from starting-up in conventional mode.

I have no idea how that would work, and since mine are all the 555 based fixed time boards, I can't add delay if I wanted to.  Since I have absolutely no intention of running the MTH app on a relatively huge iPad, there's no incentive for me to go further, I think we have proven where the problem is at this point.

My bad, I somehow misunderstood that the pot on the WD board adjusted timing.  I agree, we have proven where the problem is and we can close this discussion.  Thank you again for all your testing, support and expertise on this matter!  I hope we get to meet in-person soon, perhaps at Henning's.   BTW, I got to see you and your fantastic layout while watching the Henning's video last night.  I especially loved the access panel/section lift.  Nice work!!!    BTW, wanted to ask you what you used for the wide smooth seamless looking vertical trim around the edges of your benchwork?   Thanks!

The post does adjust timing, but the timing is somewhat critical, if you open it up significantly, the engines will come up in conventional mode and the WD box is pointless.  I don't see this solveing your problem with Apple, I think the MTH software is simply broken.

I redesigned the board to eliminate calibration totally, that's the 555 fixed timing based board I refer to.  Naturally, since I make the boards, I gave myself the new version.

There was a suggestion to only run the WD box for a few seconds anytime a siding was powered up.  Obviously, this requires you to know when the power up happens individually on each siding, so there would be additional controls to be designed and wired for every siding power control.  I'm not really pursuing this option as I don't have the issue in my environment.

BTW, all you ever wanted to know about how my layout was constructed.

I'm assuming you're asking about the fascia?
