It sounds like this setup includes only one TV. Temporarily connect a second TV to the composite and/or component out with the Cisco's HDMI still connected to the original TV. If composite/component...

I think I reset the clock when I posted here last. Now it's 12 seconds fast. :p

I took out the 68pf, put in a previously unused 47pf using a small tip 25W iron. Clock set NIST -0500 exact @16:04.

Put in a 68pF this time, set clock @15:25 EST to the second. If this doesn't help I'll need to remember to try a smaller tip and faster work next try.
