Hi All, I've received great advice here before... hoping you guys can help me out on this one!
I've been playing with some D-Line displays that we'll be using for the upcoming Whitewater Slalom race season. The controls and menu are pretty intuitive, and the manual outlines everything well.
I'm trying to connect to the display using an RS232 connection from a PC, but have been unsucessful using both my timing software, and the D-Line configurator.
The cables all work, cables are plugged into the RS232 banana receptacles on the D-Line, COM ports are active and data is being sent... but no communication to the D-Line is being made. The configurator searches active com ports and runs through baud rates, but no communication.
-Does the D-Line need to be set to certain setings for even the D-Line configurator software to find it?
-Have any of you out there bee able to set the D-Line to the "PC Communication" mode... "SE P2"?? When we run through the "SE" settings on our D-Lines, that "P" option never appears... which might be why we cannot estabish PC communication, I'm not sure.
-Is there a way to do a master reset of the software on the D-Line? Would this help?
Any ideas or advice would be much appreciated!
