Just curious.
Kind of, yes, and no.
You can get text messages, updates, etc. when a team score, but they're not instant.
Is there an app, feed, etc. that is out there which will spit the data out? Near instant? My guess is yes, but I don't know where one would find it.

I used to get scores / updates, but again, they're anywhere from 30 seconds to 2 or 3 minutes off.

I'm just thinking if we COULD find a source, the rest would be "easy".

More importantly, *IF* it is close to "real time" (which it has got to be, right?) what's their data source, and can we get access to it?

There is an android/iphone app that they use to sync the BWRL.

Different idea, Paging dr neau - could you code the red light to light up/spin/take it to hockey funkytown when the blinds are up in tournament manager? This in combo with a horn would be kick ass for large tourneys.

It's a one time setup by android, or iphone/ipad. You can select as many 'cities' as you want. Any time you want to change any of the cities you need to run the setup again. No Blackberry support.......bastards!

And yeah, they aren't cheap, but it seems very solid. Nice construction for sure.

I've had it for 2 games now. Got it in time for the Buffalo and Montreal game. The delay for me was anywhere from 15-27 seconds (I used a stop watch after the first goal cause I was pissed!). They go off for shootout goals too. At one point, a Hab scored, they showed a couple of replays, and as the Sabre was attempting their shot, the horn went off for the previous Habs' goal. BRUTAL! Went to the Budweiser Canada Facebook page, and all sorts of people were freaking about delays similar to mine. Others said it went off within 2 seconds. Budweiser says the problem is my wifi. LOL. Yeah, the problem is my wifi....

I was looking forward to the Habs-Leafs game on Saturday to see if it would be any better. Musta been a serious malfunction somewhere, cause it didn't go off once.

I hope it works tonight!

Also, Budweiser is only guaranteeing support until the end of the playoffs for the 2013 season. Not sure what will happen after the season. I'm sure there will be hacks out there using the electric imp card that powers the thing.

If anybody has any questions, lemme know!
