    DGT boards

    The club DGT board is aging and the computor now only indicates that the board is connected but shows no pieces. Any advice from the experts?

    Did you get any help with this - David Esmonde is the Qld expert on DGT boards?

    Hi Martin


    Sorry we did not get time to touch on this issue during the QLD Open - I am guessing that your DGT is a Serial Tournament e-board. If the pieces are not displaying, then validating your cabling would be the first step.

    I can post you a tested working set of cables to use if you wish, or we can arrange to catch up at the Leo Wilkinson Redcliffe if you are playing.

    Regards - David E

    My understanding is that the QLD DGT boards are Bluetooth boards.

    Churchie has 4 x Bluetooth boards, whilst Redcliffe and CAQ have recently bought serial boards. The Bundaberg one is an old serial board from memory. Townsville have 4 boards as well but i'm not sure what type they are.

    FYI - Last month AuNix used the 4 Churchie bluetooth e-boards and the 8 CAQ + Redcliffe serial e-boards to broadcast the final Round of the Queensland GPS Interschools - with live commentary (15 min delay) by IM Aleks Wohl streamed to YouTube.

    The Anglican Church Grammar School ( Churchie) Premier team all took part in the recent QLD Championships; and the boys finished 9th, 10th, 19th and 23rd in the 26 player field - a great effort!
