Project language. PCS7 requires US English to be defined and can only accept certain languages. This is somewhere in the settings for the project, although it's been a while since I used it.

PCS7 is notable to throw up errors when the language isn't set up correctly. Perhaps that has something to do with it?

There's also the added capacitance that can cause havoc on encoder signals, whilst a repeater will (generally) reconstruct the signal to make it square again before outputing.
