Dumb Question(s) for Today!

SpyderTV requires a computer with:
  • Windows 2000 or XP operating system
  • USB port
  • Pentium II, 800Mhz, 256MB RAM, 100MB free drive space
  • Video Card 1024 x 768 resolution
  • 24 bpp colour (16.7 million colours)

Now for the dumb questions. (Be kind; I'm a golfer not a computer guy)

Would a 'newer' or 'more powerful' computer compromise the Spyder software? In particular, the frequency (800Mhz) and the resoulution 1024 x 768.
How about the Pentium II (Intel) as compared to a cpu using the AMD Turion processor? Will SpyderTV know or care what cpu is running it?

Folks, I don't know if older software is compromised by newer technology.
I can, however, bend a golf shot either way! Make them fly high or low.
Sometimes on target too!

Your knowledge and expertise is appreciated.

Thanks ever so much, Jake.
(Dumb) Question for Today! in a continuing series

A question for those having used SpyderTV's suction cup.

Have you had any sucess applying the colorimeter to the screens of crt rptv?

In my case, there was no way that it was going to stick to the Hitachi 57f59's plastic screen.
A little improvisation with a telescope tripod got the job done.

As one would suspect, the little sucker worked like a charm on the glass screen of the crt direct view television.
