        Is there a clock sync program available, similar to PCSync.exe, for the v1.0 Mayfly? PCSync just reports ‘No FTDI device found’ on the new boards. I’ve installed the SiLabs driver for the new VCP chip and am able to load sketches onto my board.

          Sara is the person who wrote that PCSync program, so she’ll have to be the one to comment on why it’s not working.  I’m assuming it’s just looking for the FT232RL device of the older Mayfly boards and isn’t programmed to see the CP2102 of the Mayfly 1.0 as a viable device.  In the meantime, you can just use the the DS3231/adjust.ino sketch to manually set the clock until she’s able to update the PCSync program.

            Oh interesting I hadn’t seen the PYsync

            In EnviroDIY_DS3231\examples\PCsync\PYsync.py

            There is a line looking for the port
            # Keep only ports with the device communication type
            device_ports = [
            p for p in ports
            if ‘VID_0403+PID_6001’ in p[2]

            From device manager, PORTS , Silicon Labs CP210x USB to UART
            In Events
            I see
            Device USB\VID_10C4&PID_EA60\0001 requires further installation.

            Don’t know whether that will work

              Ah, that helps. Thanks Shannon and Neil!

                @mbarney just wondering did that work for you with the Mayfly1.0 .  Do you have any changes you made to the program. Many thanks

                  Ok. Got it running with a student I’m working with (over zoom)

                  shows the ports and then substitute for “FTDI”

                  So in https://github.com/EnviroDIY/Sodaq_DS3231/blob/master/examples/PCsync/python3.9/PCsync3.py

                  about line 101 subsitute

                  “Silicon Labs”

                  (or maybe there is an OR function – but I don’t recognize the iterator )
