*** Hi

CV8 is the manufacturer number. Whilst resetting asks you to write CV8 to 8, it triggers a reset but does NOT change CV8 - it will always stay at the manufacturers number when read.

re CV's 2, 4 and 6. (Vmin, Vmid and Vmax) the "No influence" default maximum for all of them is actually zero. This is the safest way to set to max everything, as depending on brand then max could be either 64 or 255.

If you want to set to a universally comfortable set of figures for most loco's without restricting top speed, then try Mmax at whatever instructions say is max, and Vmid at 2/3 of that number.
