    Default LED Triks with TriksC not working well.

    Question. My Marquee is not running smoothly. It seems to play for a bit then pauses, continues to play, and so on. My first thought was the serial port settings. I have tried to change them all. No differences. It is currently set to 57600, 8, 1, none. I have also tried switching off of the serial port and tried a USB to serial converter. The same results. I'm not thinking it's the network cable because the sign is getting everything it's being sent. Just slow/laggy. I have also unplugged the wireless network to the computer to see if that makes a difference. It has not. Any suggestions? Not sure what to try next.

    Just a suggestion, completely from left field, is the triksc.dat file correctly setup. I know that I made the mistake of not taking the defaults on one occasion when setting it up and I got similar results to what you are describing. Mine for two panels when opened in notepad looks like :-

    Just checked Terry. The triksc.dat is setup the same as yours

    I have two panels but they are in the vertical format.
    Thanks for the input.

    Here is some more info. I tried re-booting the marquee last night, changed the com port to Com1, turned off and on the port buffers, none of this has made a changes in the way it runs. The only other thing I can think of trying is changing the network cable I'm using. Anyone else have a suggestion?
