Having a problem synchronizing my bulbdial clock to my pC using the USB-serial interface. I have had my clock for a couple of years now and decided to add the RTC so as to keep the time after power failures. Installed the RTC and all looks good so far, once power is removed and reinstalled the clock reads the current time value from the RTC, however this time has not been set yet. downloaded the Processing and date time library with the "setArduinoClock.pde" and attempted to use to set the current date/time in the bulbdial. When I initially connect to the clock it resets, which seems to be the norm that people experience. Not to concerned about the reset as I just need to set the RTC and let it go. however executing the program doesn't seem to alter the time on the clock. the only thing that I haven't attempted to do is reflash the clock. I assumed that the firmware in the clock when purchased had a correct firmware to allow synchronization of the clock via serial pC port. anyone have any ideas or know if the firmware indeed needs to be flashed to support the pc sync?
I've uploaded the modified Process sketch to use to send the time to the bulbdial clock. hope this helps other.
