I searched on the IV range that you originally mentioned (17 - 18 / 21 - 23 / 14 - 15 / 26 / 20 - 22 / 22 - 24) on frame 1 with a delay range of 1800-20000, and while I'm not 100% sure, I think you might be hitting something way different than you expect.

Out of curiosity, do you have experience with RNG abuse in 4th Gen?
Yesterday was my very first attempt at RNG, actually. I spent a few hours reading up on everything and gave it a go.
Just now I tried adjusting the time to 23:43 instead of 23:44 as per ZomgTimer's suggestion to see if I can't do something about the time discrepancy, and I hit the following seed:
IV: 13 / 28 / 19 / 17 / 10 / 15
Unlike my previous attempts, there was no time discrepancy between the time I set and the time of the seed I just found. For the first seed search, after reading about how the C-Gear frame change is actually 3 as opposed to 1, I set the frame range from 3 to 8 and got nothing. When I tried it again with frame 1, I got the above result.
At this point I'm fairly certain that I made a very big mistake or three early on in the calibration process, so unless you think I can find the proper calibration value at this point, I'll most likely be starting over.
In the event that I do, however, when using C-Gear RNG, do the C-Gear activation and Sweet Scent frame advancement count as 1, 3 or 4? I've read that frames below 3 are impossible using C-Gear RNG.
EDIT: Just one more question: there's a slight discrepancy in the delay between the seed results in the Seed Searcher and those in the Seed Inspector. I assume this doesn't matter but, just to cover all the bases here, does it?
