Did you try to change the external time source your PDC looks to for time?  (Maybe something happened to the external time server your PDC is set to sync time with?)

Simple, centralized multimedia control

Watch and learn to see how ATEN provided an easy and effective way for three jointly-owned pubs to control the 60 televisions located across their three venues utilizing the ATEN Control System, Modular Matrix Switch and HDBaseT extenders.

i'll give that a try. I manually set the date/time on the PDC just to get everyone back online.

Are you using Hyper-V?  If so disable the Time synchronization integration service for you DC Guest OS's.
