DT100r's are pretty hard to use with programming. Not only that, Digitrax hasn't made them for a number of years. I would advise getting a DT402R. They are VERY easy to program with and use.

I had trouble programming my DCC Shay on the programming track (MRC Prodigy Advance) and ended up getting a programming booster unit which solved the problem. I think the Tsunami-Lite sound decoder requires more juice than many DCC units can provide in prog mode.
