    I made a clock using the NTE2061 ic. Also found that it's a very close match to the Philips ECG2061.
    I was helped by info I found on these forums that was posted by k7elp60.

    What is the actual time? c6 : 42 or |6 : 42?

    When I was young I always wondered what's inside these ICs and how do they actually work. I disassembled a lot of appliances but not having much of a clue.

    Then I stopped for many years, became occupied with computers...

    Interesting to see the pricing when looking for this IC, if I would charge such prices on my ebay...

    Not bad for a first time project? Is it?

    Brownout is correct, That led on the left is for pm and the one above it is for am.

    I've attached a quick drawing of how I hooked it up, for more info see:

    http://www.nteinc.com/specs/2000to2099/pdf/nte2060.pdf
    http://www.datasheetarchive.com/dlmain/Datasheets-112/DSAP0045831.pdf

    The circuit in the pdf can be a bit confusing (it was for me at least).

    Obviously, you'll need to adjust the resistor values for the displays according to the voltage you are using etc.
