Silver strike and golden tee same cabinet
« on: November 26, 2016, 06:06:06 pm »
I just picked up a SSB 2007 unit with nighthawk box. I know there are multiple threads on this to purchase a unit that allows this. I'm jusT thinking that I can have a complete independent system that runs on a different TV input in the same cabinet. the only thing that would be shared is the buttons and trackball from the control panel. So I'm thinking that all I need to do is splice the control panel item wires to both I/O boards and it should work?

Anyone think this is a bad idea or would not work? :dunno
Thanks  ;D

Just an update on this, I needed a project. I put the bowling nighthawk, cid and I/o board in my Gt cabinet, spliced the trackball and button wires, installed a on-off-on toggle switch on the front connected to the green wire on each power supply so both nighthawk pc's don't both run at the same time. Now all I do is hit the toggle switch and change the hdmi input on my tv and I'm switching from golden tee to silver strike bowling.

Interesting idea. When you toggle the switch, does it kill the power immediately or does it do the soft power down?

Power supplies will not power up without being plugged in to a board so Basically the green wire needs to be grounded for it to power up. I cut the green wire in both power supplies and wired them to an on off on toggle switch so only one power supply can be on at a time.

I can take some pics of anyone is interested.

I know this is older but would you mind posting/sending pics of the toggle install. I'm just doing this myself. Thanks in advance.

I also did this same setup based on this post. I can post pics. What exactly are you looking for? I have an on off on toggle switch that basically connects the green wire on both power supplies. The other option is remote power adapters that are available on Amazon for cheap. Can have them inside your cabinet and just use remote to power each nighthawk separately.
