Hello people I'm new here

I've been able to connect my StackMat timer to my computer and make it work correctly with CCT on Windows here. When I use keyboard as timer, I can have a 15 sec. WCA Regulation countdown. But when I use my StackMat as timer, how do I make it countdown? Is this possible?

To be clear:

I am using my StackMat connect to my computer thru microphone jack, using CCT 0.9.5. My StackMat value is 50, I have checked 15 Minutes, 165 seconds and 165 hundredths, sampling rate 44,100. When keyboard timer is off, it says Timer is ON. I suppose this means that my StackMat is running. Usually, when timer isn't started, above the time I see a green light. When I hold both on my hands on the StackMat and release, the time starts timing. When done, the time the same as the time on my StackMat appears on my computer. Then there is also a smaller red light. When I hold one or both hands on the timer, the red light disappears on the computer.
I have to reset my StackMat (press RESET) and then the time on my computer and StackMat goes zero and the red light disappears.

This sounds all normal to me but still it doesn't do countdown. Am I doing something wrong?

Did you not read what I said? You put one hand on one pad and then lift it off. This will start the inspection countdown.

Seriously it doesn't work.
BTW everyime I start CCT there appears a time of 1066.66 in my solvetimes. Why?
Also, if I hold just one hand on my StackMat the red light doesn't go on. Is this ok?

Interesting. I wasn't aware that PPT does the CCT style stackmat inspection. Ironically, while PPT works for you but CCT doesn't, I have the inverse problem, so I can't really test this out.

If you want some help, you could try recording the sound your stackmat makes when reset, and when reset with your left hand on the pad, and reset with your right hand on the pad. Maybe there will be something interesting in there.
