PsychoPy version: 3.1
Standard Standalone?: Yes
What are you trying to achieve?: I am trying to send a signal from my laptop to a device called PowerLab that collects our data. I want the stimulus from the laptop to signal to the device to insert a comment at the start of the test. We are currently using these two cables (USB-PPO PPO-PowerLab digital input) to connect the laptop to Powerlab.
I have read other forums, and downloaded the appropriate driver (inpout32) and placed it into the correct folder. I used “USB Device Viewer” to find the device address and specified this in PsychoPy.
I have noticed that when I unplug and plug in the USB cable to the laptop that the appropriate signal is sent to Powerlab and a comment is dropped. But, when I actually run the experiment to try and output the signal, nothing happens. I assume this means that either the signal cannot be processed by the cables or that PsychoPy is not communicating with the device address.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
