Re: Ice Tube firmware - Drift correction with Auto DST, Dimmer
I am *happy*gasbag today!
That is very good news. Thank you so much! Can't wait to see how you did it (I've been trying to figure out the code).
I got myself a usbasp programmer and can now 'talk' reliably to both my Atmel-based clocks with my Mac (IceTube and IV-17 Modular Clock from Akafugu). Done away with the DAPA.
I also got hold of some fantastic little 433MHz receiver boards (about 12mm square) and one of these now lives under my IceTube. When I get the new firmware installed I will probably put the receiver inside the clock itself. The serial data from a single BR-355 GPS receiver is now being received using 433MHz wireless retransmission by 5 nixie and VFD clocks in my house. The only one that doesn't have GPS enabled is the Akafugu one - only a matter of time :-)
And, FWIW, I have never had any alarms going off at midnight. Mind you, the alarm has never been switched on so maybe that's why.
