Daktronics 2.4Ghz scoreboards
We’ve had a strange report from our Athletics division. The report is the Daktronics wireless scoreboards and shot-clocks freeze, but eventually reconnect and catch-up. This building just went through an extensive renovation where the previous system was used, but only the scoreboards were wireless, and not the shot-clocks. The Daktronics control console the official uses seems only to broadcast the signal one-way with no board or shot-clock return acknowledgements.
We’ve gone down with a R&S FSH323, and found the 2.4 is bursting at the seams. We had disabled the 2.4Ghz frecency on our campus Aruba system throughout the building, and although the clocks didn’t freeze as much, they still continue to freeze and loose time.
Daktronics technicians were on site mid-week, and reoriented the antennas, and also changed frequencies on each of the devices with no resolution. After four hours, they suggesting radio and board replacement, or hard-wire.
Has anyone heard of this before, or dealt with this before? Do we need an exorcist?
