External counter for Bars&Beats

I use Punchlight Studio Display XT2, which works great with SMPTE.

Problem: Bars&Beats counter is supported only via HUI and it displays only 2 digits of bars
i.e. bar 99 shows as
and bar 100 shows as

I contacted Punchlight support, and they responded that “the information about the higher order bar counts is simply missing in the data that are being sent out from the DAW”.

Can anyone with a HUI compatible device please confirm that Nuendo outputs only 2-digit bar numbers via HUI?

Does anybody use dedicated external counters with Nuendo?
It’s so common in ProTools studios.
