DGT XL clocks

pIn the spirit of 'the best way to learn anything is to try and teach it to someone else', here goes:/p pDGT XL Clocksbr / =============/p pPart 1: Loading and adjusting pre-set time controlsbr / ===================================================/p p1.1. Turn on using the switch underneath the clock. The buttons on the top of the clock are, from left to right:br / [ / S ] back/storebr / [ - / d ] less/soundbr / ( ' ) start/pausebr / [ + / ? ] more/movesbr / [ / @ ] next/adjust/p pThe only way to reset is the button underneath the clock: it's deliberatelybr / difficult to do accidentally (or 'accidentally') during a game./p p1.2. The display will show a two-digit number: different numbers mean abr / different time control (e.g. 03 is a five-minute blitz game), and thebr / explanation is printed on the bottom of the clock./p p1.3. If the number shown to start with is not the one you want,br / i.use the [-] and [+] buttons to get to the number you want, thenbr / ii. select using []br / iii. select side to move first by pressing clock lever (it expects to be on White's left, press the lever if you want the clock on the other side)br / iv. start using the central (') button (the same button pauses play)br / v. Press [+/?] to see number of movesbr / vi. To play again, turn off and on again, then [] and (')./p p1.4. Most of the time controls we play are not among the pre-set ones.br / You can find a time limit which is more or less what you want andbr / adjust it. Adjust by holding down the [] key until things flash, andbr / walk through the sequence. /p pTime period: 1br / White hoursbr / White minutesbr / White additional time per movebr / Black hoursbr / Black minutesbr / Black additional time per move/p pthen time period 2, same sequencebr / then time periods 3/4/5/p pBut be warned, you will have to adjust it every time, it doesn't savebr / your adjustments. /p p1.5 You can adjust the time to award a 2-minute penalty and adjust thebr / move count this way./p pThat's all there is to it! Well, nearly all.../p pPart 2: Loading and saving time controlsbr / ========================================/p p2.1 I hope someone has got to the clock before you and told it about thebr / limits we play. (I have set up one clock and will work my way aroundbr / the other 11, or someone else will.) Try using 00 and seeing if it'sbr / set to what you want./p p2.2. If not, hold down the key for a while, which is also the S forbr / Store key. You will get a display that says L and shows 12345 in abr / column. Each of the 12345 is a custom time control. Use [+] and [-] tobr / walk through them, and if you see one you want, then use [] to select andbr / (') to start, as usual. The saved custom time controls are (or shouldbr / be):/p p00 1 36/1h15m+15m QPF (Club championship)br / 00 2 40/1h40m+20m QPF (weekend league)br / 00 3 G/30 (Rapidplay)br / 00 4 30/1h+15m QPF (weekday league)br / 00 5 ?/p p2.3. If you have a clock that hasn't been programmed with our chosen time controls: then set your own time control. /p pi. Turn off and on againbr / ii. select 00 and then []br / iii. walk through the time period options, setting each with [+] and [-] and moving on with []:br / Time period: 1br / White hoursbr / White minutesbr / White additional time per movebr / Black hoursbr / Black minutesbr / Black additional time per move/p pthen time period 2, same sequencebr / then time periods 3/4/5/p pSave by holding down [S] and it should respond P with a list 12345, one of which will be flashing./p pWalk up and down the 12345 to pick the one you want, then [] to save./p pAll that again in video form: a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mV3rWtugWA4" title="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mV3rWtugWA4"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mV3rWtugWA4/a/p pAll that and more in the manual: a href="http://www.digitalgametechnology.com/site/index.php/dgtsupport/developer..." title="http://www.digitalgametechnology.com/site/index.php/dgtsupport/developer..."http://www.digitalgametechnology.com/site/index.php/dgtsupport/developer...
