Wow, calibration frustration...

  I messed with it for hours, couldn't get lane 1 finish to show a [2]...  I used [4] grey A-oks trying to figure it out...thinking that that would help calibrate...

  Well I am the dummy here, I swapped in a grey phone cable so as not to mess up the lane connections... Duh !... I guess that there are more wires in the factory blacks than the greys... Changed back to the factory blacks... I got the [2] instantly...

When calibrating the start, # [1] when calibrated, will be inboard on both lane's readout screen... The finish line, # [2] when calibrated is on the outside of the screens...

 Only lane 2 wins and flashes reaction time...

 Re-calibrated... Lane 1 wins and flashes... Enough...Going back to bed...
