QUOTE (Makemineadouble @ 19 Jun 2007, 05:42) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>To be fair we did suggest this several weeks ago. I think we recognise and accept that the Hornby system has it's own unique requirements and problems.
There appears to be no acknowledgement that the Hornby system needs to be improved to make it compatible. Just an arrogance that they have a system, they are right and if Gary is to be believed everyone else's system is wrong, including the NMRA.

The latest review in Model Rail hardly highlights any problems with the system, which I find misleading. It rubber stamps every thing which is a poor review. Given the amount of advertising Hornby place with model Rail I'm hardly surprised.

So by all means separate true DCC and the other sort of system

I never used the term DIY did I

This is true, we did suggest this. A designated area for Hornby dcc users would be best for all concerned.

The reviews in the mags tend to be sychophantic by nature. I couldn't believe the Pendolino review, it missed out all of the problems even though some of them were obvious from the photographs in the review. I don't think a magazine review can be taken seriously especially one that has full page add's of the review subject matter.

I certainly wouldn't be arguing with MMaD either. It is pretty clear from his posts that he knows what he's talking about.
