Hi :) I am currently using the IBM live scoreboard on the official website for the men's qualifying matches, and I am experiencing the same problem with the scoreboard that I've had since last year's FO. I have to stay in one court (only) if I want the scores to be updated in real time. If I switch courts, the scores seem to be frozen until I stay long enough in one court to see the scores finally being updated. I've had the same problem using the IBM scoreboard at last year's FO, Wimbledon and US Open. Am I the only one ? The IBM scoreboard used to be extremely reliable (a couple of years ago) but now....

Please, tell me I'm not the only one...I have a cable connection and don't have this problem during other tournaments...Only the GS IBM live scoreboards mess with me...

Any help would be appreciated :)

I also have cable and I also have the same problem...Perhaps we should contact IBM...

Thanks Gowza for sharing. I'm kind of relieved I'm not the only one...Last year, i sent a couple of e-mails to the tech support staff to let them know about the problem..but of course, I never heard back from them...What was I thinking ?

That really is annoying...Does anyone NOT have this problem ?

Now, I'm at work...and the scoreboard is working fine...I know we have a stronger, more powerful computer system here...but i find it annoying that I can have a 100% functional scoreboard at home...I don't know much about computers, but I'm certain it's strong enough to have a functional scoreboard...arrgghhh :(

Hmmm looks like they changed something. Couse yesterday I had always to refresh the scoreboard to get the updated results. But today you can even follow who just made the point as the feeld changing turns black for a blink.

Well I'm using the overall scoreboard not sure if that's of any help.
