Setup in NCAA LiveStats
do this before every game:
- Launch NCAA LiveStats
- Load your Game Key (or setup a manual key) and enter the game
- From the Settings menu, choose In-Venue Feed
- Press the 'Start TV Feed' button
If you have previously run NLS for this sport, it may already be active.
If you have changed Server Port from the default value of 7677, you will need to enter it in Listener's Advanced Settings.
- Launch StatBroadcast Listener
- When prompted, select 'Yes' to login and load an event
- Select your event from the drop down list and click 'Load'
- Press the green Start Listening button
- Begin scoring your game in NCAA LiveStats.
Listening Port Number
NCAA LiveStats allows you to customize the internet Port number it uses to transmit its live feed. By default, this value is set to '7677' in both NCAA LiveStats and Listener. If you change the port setting in LiveStats, you will need to make a corresponding change in Listener in 'Advanced Settings -> Port to Listen on'.
Using Listener on a Separate Computer
It is possible to use the Listener app on a separate computer from your scoring computer. If you have two computers that are on the same physical network, you can obtain the IP address from your scoring computer and enter that in the 'Advanced Settings -> IP Address to Listen on'.
To listen on the same computer as NCAA LiveStats is running, please make sure the 'IP Address to Listen on' is set to 127.0.0.1
Alternate Setup Instructions
Should you for some reason be unable to install or utilize the StatBroadcast Listener, alternate setup instructions are available here for use with the NLS In-Arena Utility.
