WWVB is not shortwave but ultra-long wave (60 KHz).
There are several $15 off-the-shelf receivers available that will receive and convert the time to a serial format.

The hard part would be getting the iView folks to write the code to use it.
I could easily imagine making a infrared modulator to send the time to the 3500 via the remote's interface without making any hardware mods to the 3500 at all.
The receiver is still available from the UK for 6 pounds.
The choice of a different power supply could have given iView a line-referenced 60/50 Hz interrupt source - the kind that gives your digital clock its incredible accuracy.
On second thought, if the time was available in any format from the IR interface, the astute of this board would've been happy long ago.
Well, I do know how to rip the 60 KHz WWVB receiver from a number of different products.
And I have a great spec for the time format of the WWVB transmissions - a PIC micro-controller could smoke a carton of cigarettes between each bit.
I am awaiting the PSK spec from WWVB - the progeny of my cheap Casio digital watch can live in a jewelry box and still get a good update using that format.
The onus is on iView - their lack of action is beyond belief.
There are so many creative idea of clock. The question is which solution IVIEWUS.com can deliver or affort to deliver?
Please fix the next Daily/weekly schedule record time correctly first.
Add set current date/time clock value(year, month, time, second) in MENU->Time screen instead of pull in time from Channel PSIP.
