Hi Merf, yep I have a smart board. Unfortunately it doesn't work and still waiting for IT to fix it... any day now. When it was working I wasnt using it much because of the orientation problems but I have been told there is another method of orientating the board. So when its working again Im looking forward to testing it out. Cheers
