Bumping due to my own relevance and to the fact that it doesn't seem that this has been solved yet.

Long story short, I can't get CCT to recognize my stackmat pro on windows 8. I've used the same properties/configurations that made this work on a windows vista laptop(checked all boxes) and I've even gone to the microphone properties and boosted the levels all the way up. I've tried looking for other timers that integrate stackmat pro, but to no significant results.

Halp plz.
I have the exact same problem with a v2, hopefully somebody has the solution!

I found an odd fix for this on a Vista laptop many years back. Plug the audio cable into the computer half way, such that only one of the audio channels being picked up by the computer. This worked in CCT and I have seen it reproduced, unsure about Prisma.

I have no problems getting my stackmat pro work on a vista, it's windows 8 that's causing me trouble. However, I did try this just now to see if it would actually work and nothing. I do hope we get an update on this soon if it's just a software type of thing.

I have successfully gotten Stackmat Pro to work on Prisma with Windows 8. If you want a beta version of this Prisma, PM me and I'll send you a link. The reason I haven't released yet is because I'm waiting to integrate QJ Timer before I fully release it.

Connecting Stackmat to Laptop

I have a stackmat timer that I can connect to my computer. I have bought the necessary cables to connect to my laptop. One issue though is that my laptop doesn't have a microphone port so I bought a microphone to USB adapter. I have connected by stackmat, and seen in my system preferences that the computer is picking up the signal, yet when I go to Prisma Puzzle Timer, it's not registering the time, even after I have adjusted the settings properly on the timer. Can someone tell me what's wrong?
