Once we really focused on the problem it took about a day or so to figure it out, but we blamed it on bad connections, etc. for a couple of weeks.

When you did get to the right solution, Steve, it must have been a big "Ah ha" moment. Looking back you probably thought, "But of course!"

Mr Gross,

This is why engineers are paid so well, intuition and experience can solve a lot of issues.

I am in the same boat with SteveG56.. How long did it take you to figure out the issue?

I have a similar "Ghost in the machine" problem too.. Took me a month to realize it was noise in the surrounding environment. Along the way... my intuition took me on a snipe chase..

Rob,  I don't want to tell you how long it took to make that deduction!

This is a great example of deductive logic, chasing that one bit, and then coordinating the two clocks.
