Rc To Run Startline Hardware

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

 

Has anyone ran Start line hardware with Race Coordination software through a usb to com port adaptor

and if so which track set up did you use.

If anyone could help it would be appreciated.

USB to Com Port adapters are a real problem to use with most Slot Race programs.

I have tested a lot of adapters and only found a couple that would work OK and even those would not work reliably with all PC’s.

I do not think RC will even communicate with the Startline Hardware.

Best of luck!

I have only seen RC work with a Startline box directly from a PC with a 25 pin printer port, LPT1 not a USB.

 

Even with that setup it wasn't perfect and had the occasional hiccup.

Thanks Guys for your information, its what I thought before I started this project

After a couple of hours of trying to make it work I put it into the too hard basket I will try again when I get an old lap top with a 25 pin port :blink:

Thanks again

That's going to be an old laptop then...

The last one I saw with a parallel port was a Pentium 3.

 

Funny thing is, I still have it, and it's still running fine for RC.

Does anyone know if the guy behind Startline is still about?

The website was created years ago, but never updated. www.startline.net.au

 

Wondering if I should delete reference to it from my update on Race Management systems

 

That wasn't Brett (espsix) was it?
