I have a relatively small layout with ONE TIU, ONE DCS remote, ONE WIU, and ONE AIU. Four engines. All up to date on software as it is only a 2 year old system. The last thing I did at my last session was to just backup the REMOTE and upload one engine's sound file to my PC. Today I started a fresh session and I seem to have no communication between devices. All of the engines came up in Conventional default mode, I had no DCS control of engines. I am getting OUT of RF Range error even with the remote right next to the TIU. I have tried a remote reset, a TIU reset, cycling power etc.
I go to System, TIU setup, ADD TIU, and it gives me choices of TIU 2, 3, 4,5 , but not TIU 1 because I presume TIU is the default. Then I go to TRACK SETUP, Add Track, Add TIU Track, TIU 1, and it only give me a choice of Variable 1 or Variable 2, I can't select FIXED 1 or FIXED 2 as they are not shown. FIXED 1 is what I had always used.
So putting the Remote aside I go to my iPad to run the system through the App. There I get No WIU/TIUS Found., but greyed out is I guess the address of what TIU 1 had been --2404. It seems to me the TIU has completely lost communication with anything, and I have attempted a TIU Factory Reset. How can I do factory reset without a remote or WIU connection to the TIU? The TIU HAS power--the red LED inside is lit.
