Yep, it has a suction cup, so now I know where to put that. Each jack
has a little icon above it showing what goes into that jack. There is a
gun icon, a flasher/sensor icon, a headphone icon and a little icon that
looks like a VCR. I would think it gets perhaps some special
synchronization information recorded on the tape that tells the unit when
you actually made a hit. Otherwise I can't think of how the unit
actually knows you hit anything.
