To Set Up your Electric Eye, first go to | Utilities | Set Up Defaults | Electronic Timer Set Up | Standard Set Up | from the Main Menu.

NOTE: Be sure to Test your timer each time you use it!  

You will be advised that a restart of BarrelTime is needed after changing the Timer Default, then go to the Timer Setup window.

   

Select the Timer you are using and press [Test] -- the Eye Test starts immediately.

Back in the DOS days, your choice was COM1 or COM2. Today's computers with multiple USB ports and other I/O ports more typically use COM3 to COM5, or even higher. But -- each computer is different.

What can make it even more confusing, is that the COM port may change from time to time on the same computer depending on whether or not additional devices are plugged into it.

NOTE: Be sure to Test your timer each time you use it! 

  

When you click on OK, you will be returned to the desktop. Restart BarrelTime. The timer you selected will be your default timer unless/until you change it.
