I had trouble too and have made some modifcations:

1) use the ppsapi to get the timings on cd pin.
As I only have one clock (DCF type) I didnt try to have the decoding
on cts and dsr survive.

2) I have made some DCF specific filtering of the input to remove
spurious pulses. This might disable other non dcf decoding.
(can be disabled at compile time)
(I dont like the idea of automatic clock type detection when noisy
signals are present)

The code needs some cleanup.
