    Default MRC 1909 HO sound only decoder

    Hello all

    I bought one of these awhile ago for stationary sound & just hooked it up last night.

    I don't want to be critical of it so I don't want to get into the reasons why, but long story short I really just want to use it for the horn & bell.

    Been playing around with the CVs and I can't get it to shut off the prime mover or all the other sounds & just play the horn & bell.

    Anyone know if I'm doing something wrong, or is that just the way it is?

    Yes I could contact MRC but I thought I'd ask here first.

    Thanks
    Keith

    Have you tried to turn the volume off?

    Yes I've set all the sound related CVs (except bell & horn of course) to 0 and it doesn't shut them off, but they are really quiet lol

    Setting the master volume to its lowest level just makes everything quieter, which makes sense because why would one want to mute out a sound only decoder.

    Oh, and my apologies to @Elwood for riffing on his thread title-it was unintentional
