Second oops! (seems to be a day of botch-ups). You want the time to be
expressed as a decimal and I thought multiplying by the minutes 5/3 would
do the trick; but that does works only for minutes difference greater than
5. So here's another modification:
\def\timediff#1:#2-#3:#4 {%
\setcounter{bh}{#1}
\setcounter{bm}{#2}
\setcounter{eh}{#3}
\setcounter{em}{#4}
\ifthenelse{\(\value{eh}>\value{bh}\or\value{eh}=\value{bh}\)
\and\(\value{em}>\value{bm}\or\value{em}=\value{bm}\)}
{\setcounter{dh}{\value{eh}-\value{bh}}
\setcounter{dm}{\value{em}-\value{bm}}}
{\ifthenelse{\(\value{eh}>\value{bh}\or\value{eh}=\value{bh}\)
\and\value{em}<\value{bm}}
{\setcounter{dh}{\value{eh}-\value{bh}-1}
\setcounter{dm}{60+\value{em}-\value{bm}}}
{\ifthenelse{\value{eh}<\value{bh}
\and\(\value{em}>\value{bm}\or\value{em}=\value{bm}\)}
{\setcounter{dh}{24+\value{eh}-\value{bh}}
\setcounter{dm}{\value{em}-\value{bm}}}
{\ifthenelse{\value{eh}<\value{bh}\and\value{em}<\value{bm}}
{\setcounter{dh}{23+\value{eh}-\value{bh}}
\setcounter{dm}{60+\value{em}-\value{bm}}}}}{}}
\setcounter{hrdec}{\value{dm}*5/3}
\ifthenelse{\value{dm}>5}{\thedh.\thehrdec}{\thedh.0\thehrdec}}
