The MBU Scoreboard requires various configurations and support. This article may assist in troubleshooting/setup.
If there are issues configuring the network side of the software/dongle outside of the configurations/specifications below, the company we spoke with over the phone was AJT Systems (A Division of Daktronics) which specializes in broadcast graphics. They will be able to assist over the phone and via remote sessions to the PC/Laptop running the Scoreboard software.
The particular issue we have had in the past was getting the Daktronics scoreboard in Lacey Gymnasium to send data through the All-Sport CG to the MOXA Serial Device Server, through the StarTech Ethernet Network Adapter and into the broadcast graphics computer – Livebook GFX. Depending on the issue, we will need to loop in the Networking Engineer and possibly contact AJT Systems support which was done by Adam Samson in the past.
