Alright, after perusing the Bulbdial code again, I see where the clocks serial port is setup at 19200 baud and the time header needs to be a byte equivalent to 255 (FF). the current sample Process Sketch has the baud set at 9600 and is sending a time header of “T”. after modifiying the sketch a little it know syncs up to the bulbdial.
I’ve uploaded the modified Process sketch to use to send the time to the bulbdial clock. hope this helps other.
