I have a modular rev3 clock running the latest v355 firmware that runs with no problems. I would like to disable the decimal indicator on the ten-second tube. I know I can cut the trace on the tube board by the bridgeable solder pads but I would like to know where to look in the code to accomplish this.
The last thing I wrote any code for was >25 years ago and it was in Apple IIe BASIC.
so that you get all the dependencies. I'm assuming that you don't want to get involved in Git or anything complicated.
See how you get on, in the meantime, I'll reflect on removing that indicator decimal point completely. It was helpful while I was coding it up, but it's not helpful for people using the clock day to day. The intention was to say "hey, look, I've just figured out that I have a motion sensor installed, and right now I'm showing the display". Any fool can see that the display is on because, well, the display is on.
The rest of the code around there is to figure out if a motion sensor was ever detected. If no motion sensor was ever found, the code reverts back to normal "time based blanking mode" (which is turned off if there is a motion sensor around). The DP was really to tell if we are in motion sensor blanking mode or time based blanking mode.

If you get any problems, please jsut come right back.
I really need to write a "How To" for re-programming and re-flashing, but the day is only made of 24 hours, so it waits until tomorrow. If you come back and say "this £@@##!! programming thing makes no sense", there will be a reason to do it today instead of tomorrow ...
