A 3 second delay on this race. http://prntscr.com/hva27b so if the clocks look to be ok is this delay from BF pressing a button as suggested. Seems a long time to me.

If you look at the actual race duration as quoted by Sporting Life and inserting this into the timeline gives us the exact position the race has finished and how many seconds after the completion the odds hit 1.01. 3 seconds. http://prntscr.com/hvajhj.

I would suspect that your pc is slow or you have too many charts open or other apps.

The spreadsheet is designed to record every second which it does adequately so I`m struggling to see how having any other charts or apps open on my PC can influence the race going In Play 2-3 seconds after it has actually started then actually finish with Bet Angel still firing bets into the market for the 2-3 seconds when the race outcome is already known by BF. That`s the problem, just wondering how/why it happens as it gives BF 2-3 seconds to influence results should they wish.

Are you using streaming?

Yes I use streaming but the last race I recorded with streaming off so will see if that made a difference

use a recording software and make the recording area pretty big and you will see delays of 10seconds or more.

No it did not. Resorted back to streaming and still delays.
