      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!
