But I do find it surprising to hear that the RB person wasn't able to help you. Who exactly at RB was the person who "messed with this controller and tried to get it to work", as you say?

What the person from RB did and this comes from our route manager who oversees this particular site, they changed the controller over to "time based" in an effort to get it to work. I would have to ask our route manager who was out to look at it. The supplier I take with a grain of salt he has also set some of the Solarsyncs up to a region 3 but thats a different story. This is a large site and I haven't had alot of time to work out some of these issues, and we have our crews, starting this year adjusting controllers.

There is only really one person from Rain Bird who works up in Washington. Are we talking about the same person? Any reason why you won't say who it was?

I've installed one of these and am still learning them. I know you can check on past weather but can you check on past irrigation events?

Yes. You can check by date or by zone.
