Default Its much worse than we thought

After a little research by Thomas and myself we can now confirm that

Sidney Parade
Salthill and Monkstown
Dun Loaghaire
Sandycove and Glasthule


All suffer from the Next Station <silence> bug, this bug is present on 40 DART coaches No's 8621-8640/8521-8540, the maps and displays work fine (ok so they blank for 30 seconds occasionally) Our working assumption is that the spelling/abbreviations of the stations where changed leading to a database/filesystem problem of no matching audio clip

We only have confirmed Pearse Sandycove so we assume others are effected also and a field trip will be required to get the full list

BTW if IE are reading this rename the audio files......

Angry This is just at ridiculous proportions now

This is an absolute Joke. Its clear IE cant get this right. No wonder people have no confidence in the system. Imagine a poor tourist trying to use the Dart/Suburban. IEs inaction on this issue makes it clear they dont give a crap. This is what drives me mental. Do we know if there is any work going on behind the scenes to fix this display problem once and for all ? I have the sinking feeling there is NOONE in IE who has taken on the responsibility of getting each and every trains software fixed and standardised and WORKING. God Almighty !

This mornings 09:21 pearse-Bray DART. The audio and visual both stated that this train was running non-stop between Dun Laoghaire and Bray despite the fact that the timetable and PIS said otherwise.

The 0645 Kildare to Heuston had the correct destination board (29120-29220-29320-29420) but no internal PIS/Stops called

Damn we have been waiting with a camera to catch one with a stupid destination on the Kildare line

Still no PIS is in breech of the adopted accessibilty guidlines in fact its in breech of almost the entire section 13

Yeah I noticed that myself was on the 19:45 Heuston-Carlow this evening and the front displays were displaying. The second set which arrived when we got to hazelhatch was not displaying anything atall

(This might be slightly off topic but when i was leaving I saw a MK4 set parked at platform 8 I think, looking very well, side displays brightly displaying, that orange vision is quite a blinding colour. didn't see what the display said though!)
