Multiple Timer's synced, PC Control

Unread postby Cindrah » Mon Aug 24, 2009 5:30 am

I have two questions:
1. Is it possible to sync multiple timers at once?
2. Is there a way to run a timer on one computer and use it as an external control to another computer which displays multiple timers over multiple monitors?
Example 1: Use the same hot-key for all instances of xnsw and it starts/stops/resets using that one hotkey for timers 1 2 and 3
Example 2: Computer A runs stopwatch. Has a USB connection to computer B which is the "controlling" computer for video displays throughout the area. These video displays are also displaying scoreboard information (not just sports, but for academic competitions, etc.) and is also controlled by computer A. The timers are placed over these scoreboard displays.

How it should appear?

Yes. New version will have this feature. Try beta here viewtopic.php?f=3&t=892

It seems not possible without additional customization. Due to specificity it will cost extra money.
