Daylight Savings

Postby Mapantz » Sun Mar 25, 2018 11:17 am

For the first time since owning it, my Pro2 console time didn't move forward. I had to manually do it this morning. I checked the timezone, that's set to Greenwich. Daylight savings is turned on and set to auto. I cannot work out why it didn't change?

It's not a huge problem. But, I wondered if anyone else has encountered this before?

We had our DST a couple weeks ago and like all years in the past, VP2, Vue and Cumulus consoles changed automatically, as did Cumulus and Weatherlink data files. My consoles are both plugged in to power and have batteries.

My VUE console moved forward too, and like you, both have batteries and are plugged in. I just can't understand why it didn't move forward, very strange.

I've just noticed that the console isn't keeping very good time either. I set it precisely to the PC time this morning, and the console clock would show a minute change at exactly the same time as the PC. Right now, it is 4 seconds out of sync.

Have you switched off the Cumulus time sync feature? That should set your console to match your computer time once a day.

Hi Mark

That's checked. I didn't know Cumulus can control the console clock. Obviously, that hasn't been working for me. I presume clocks go forward and back at 2am?! I adjusted the console clock around 7am this morning, so five hours passed without it moving forward or synchronising.

By default it sets the console time at 04:00. Both my consoles changed over automatically, one connected to CMX the other standalone.
