I am in need of a running clock linked ot the starting system of a colorado timing system used for swimming. I have the following questions?

1. Shoudl this work? They use the same formula that daktronics does.
2. Is there a way I can test the Datalink before I drop $1000 so I can guarentee it works.
3. Is there another program that can take a simple coreboard style data feed and allow me to get the data I need onto a screen formatted and import keyed via IVGA my preferred method if datalink is not an option
4. I need any solutions to be automatic and based upon the accurate running time of the swim.

I am using the Broadcast model tricaster and also have the HD model coming in.

Thanks for the help!

Chris, Probably you best bet on this is to look up how the system is outputting the data, ( you said " They use the same formula as the Daktronics" but you'll need really specific information ), then contact NewTek Tech Support on this one. They have more experience with which kind of data DataLink plays well with. As we've discussed, I've only ever really messed around with the SqL database functions.

I am currently working on integrating a Colorado System6 to LiveText for a coming meet that we are streaming. Did you ever get this working? Do you have a info you will share? My current plan is to parse the data thru Excel and into the text watch folder....

Any luck getting this to work with LiveText? Were you able to get any data from a Colorado Timing System into a broadcast?
