Setting up External Monitor with Bits# Issues

OS: Win10 Pro
PsychoPy version: v2021.2.3 Standalone

Error with Setup external monitor using Visage Bits#

I am trying to set up an external monitor in Psychopy using a Visage Bits# box. I have connected it and when it turns on the monitor will display the red and white CRS screen.

I have used builder to display an image on the external monitor (screen 2) however, it will only run the experiment on my laptop (screen 1).

To check whether the Bits# was working correctly I then tried to implement the following code:

from psychopy import visual
from psychopy.hardware import crs
win = visual.Window([1024,768], useFBO=True)
bits = crs.BitsSharp(win, mode = 'mono++')

Which produced the following errors:

Exception ignored in: <bound method BitsSharp.__del__ of <psychopy.hardware.crs.bits.BitsSharp object at 0x00000203F73D5C50>>
Traceback (most recent call last):
