NO
sorry your making a comprise for a non conforming system. Rather buy a decent DCC set up and save yourself the effort. Just to make it clearer the Hornby DCC system does not conform with conventional four digit addressing. It will only handle a three digit address. For a few quid more you can buy a Digitrax Zephyr and have a full blooded DCC system, why bother with Hornby.

No I'm not deliberately misunderstanding whats said. Your proposal won't work with existing hardware. Your inventing a solution where one isn't required. No offence intended. The addition of a computer simply adds to the cost and is probably unacceptable to 95% of potential users. In an Hobby where a large proportion of potential users seem to regard DCC in the same light as some type of Witch Craft this proposal is impractical.

Note: I hav'nt mentioned hornby yet
. If the Hornby Elite had the right specification with regard to addressing this discussion would not have been initiated.
