    Hello, I have an MRC Advanced system and am very happy with it, but would like to interface it with a Laptop, but have been told that MRC is not able to be used in conjunction with computer system, has anyone come up with an interface, and also what program's are available to use? any help would be appreciated.

    Sorry, Duane, the Prodigy Advance offers wireless now, power booster, and MANY other pluses:thumb: , but as far as computer interface goes, the Prodigy Advance will NOT do it:eeki::frowns: .

    I really like the Prodigy Advance:mrgreen: , and feel they stand up to the rest of the systems equally, if not better in most instances:thumb: , but for computer interface, you'll have to get another system:winki: .

    MRC is working on a computer interface but haven't announced as to when it will be available. So, there will be one but we just don't know when.

    I like the Prodigy Systems better than the others due to the large LCD screen that tells you what is going on.

    Yup, that is one reason I chose the MRC Prodigy Advanced system to begin with, plus the fact that they have such a great reputation, I had a problem with a DCC module a while back, and I sent it back with copy of my receipt from E-Bay supplier, and they quickly replaced the bad one, we can't expect more than that right?

    From my point of view, the only reason Digitrax has such a great reputation is that they were one of the first and the fact they used to give a deal to clubs.

    Don't know if they still offer the 30% off for clubs.
