i am having issues getting multiple outputs from a single DCS command. Mostly this occurs with crossing signal but also other horn signals and even crew dialog when using soft keys. I have the Wi-Fi DCS companion and have done everything I believe is mentioned in it and also have reviewed similar posts on the forum. This is my first post and wonder if I have missed something.
i am running WI-FI with a L version TIU. I am using 3 Lionel power bricks to power three channels of the TIU and another Lionel transformer for the accessories. My problems really began when I added the 2nd and third power bricks. I was using just one to power the whole layout and I would get a double output every once in a while but it has increased significantly since adding the power bricks and running three channels. I was running all power in a bus format and have changed the power to a star format and track blocks as advised in companion. I have recently modified one section of the ground or common wiring to star format as well. I have not done the other two sections as it did not seem to make a difference. I have included a picture of my layout if that helps with analyzing my issue. Each level is powered by a different TIU channel.
the power is all located behind my control panel. I have phased the transformers and added a common ground to the inputs to TIU. I have Legacy connected to TIU channel 1 output. From The TIU,s power goes to three terminal blocks, one for each section of track. The track feed wires are different lengths as the layout is a u shape with power going both ways from center to each loop. So the longest is 15 feet and shortest a couple of feet on each track loop. There are about 6 track blocks on each loop of track. I am using 16 gauge stranded wire.
Sorry for the lengthy discussion but I wanted to include as much information as possible. I would appreciate any input as I have used the forum to research issues before and there is a wealth of knowledge. Thanks for taking a look.
