I think you're right, but it's fundamental to the problem.  
It's really not a synchronization at all, it's exporting from the pilot.

That's an excellent suggestion.  I think I might use just such a
method.  It shouldn't be too difficult a job to code it either.  I'll
have a go and hopefully some actual code won't be too far away (though
a complete system will take a while).

Thanks for all you're help.
