Timing issue

Post by jmckim012 » Wed Mar 07, 2018 3:53 pm

We have an error that is causing 2-4 second races report as between 8 an 20 seconds or more when running races via any scheduler methods. We are using GPRM.

The hardware setting are right and times show correctly in the hardware testing within the software and if we try the timer by itself without any computer.

Is there a setting I am missing that may be incorrect?

Please send your HardwareDebug.log file to support@grandprix-software-central.com so I can see what data is coming in from the timer.

This file logs all communication between the software and timer and is located in the Documents\Lisano Enterprises\GrandPrix Race Manager folder.

There is certainly something weird going on with that timer. The software is merely parroting the results that the timer is sending to it.
