Until, that is, when I just recently bought my own programmer - and(!) decoder tester. I'll admit, it all sat in the unopened boxes for a couple of weeks while I ginned myself up to hook everything up. But I needn't have waited. The setup process went more smoothly than I'd imagined. So well, in fact, that I decided to share my experience in my First Ever how-to video in the hopes that I can help clear any fog or fear you may have about these great tools.
It certainly ain't Cecil B. DeMille, but if you'd like a quick overview on how to set up the ESU LokProgrammer and Decoder Tester - from a newbie's perspective - click on my video here or below:
The link to the super helpful LokProgrammer (#53452) Unboxing & Setup video that I mentioned can be found at the top of this page.
And if you don't have the instruction manual for the decoder tester, you can get it here.
I hope you find the video helpful and not too painful! %^) I'd love any feedback! So be sure to let me know what you think either in the comments below or by email.
