If you are using a different scope or camera, the range values may be inaccurate. Use the Advanced > Calibrate Range menu command to store range calibration values suitable for your scope. You will need to lock on to the target at a known range with different scope zoom levels to accurately calibrate the system.

You can locate the camera to one side of the target, but the more in-line the camera is with the target, the better.

When only the shooter needs to hear the reports we recommend using earbuds under the shooting muffs plugged into the computer's headphone jack. Should more than one person need to hear the hit reports use a standard stereo splitter plugged into the headphone jack to allow multiple devices (earbuds, speakers, etc.) to be plugged into the computer.

  • Lowering the camera resolution in the Settings panel under the Display category.

Note: The system may not be able to calibrate (no target lock) if the camera resolution is set too low).

  • Setting a smaller hit area. This can increase speed of hit detection.

  • Use a faster computer. Hit reporting should occur within one to four seconds of the hit depending on the speed of the computer.
