I use Vix and have no issues with NTP time sync. I set it to sync every 30 minutes.
Right now, my osmio-4k with OpenVIX firmware is showing 2218 when the actual time is 1630. Sometimes the time is correct, sometimes not.
Maybe the time server that is referenced? Try a different NTP server or change reference to satellite than back to network? Any reason that your network might be blocking NTP server?
I also haven't had any NTP issues on any image including OpenVIX.
I really like the 12hr Am/Pm option on OpenVIX!
It was setup for pool.ntp.org but I changed it to us.pool.ntp.org which is what my routers are using.
Is there any reason that couldn't be added to the next release of NA SatDreamGr image?
Also, Johnny (and others) make SURE you have your time settings set like this, or it can drift off after REBOOTS (until the time you set to auto resync) The "NTP cold start" and "Use RTC time from Deep Standby" are the most important ones
The NTP sever change didn't fix the problem. There are other NTP servers that I can try but my routers don't have any trouble with us.pool.ntp.org. And only OpenVIX is having trouble with time sync. OpenSPA, TNAP, and OpenDroid don't have a time sync problem. I'm trying north-america.pool.ntp.org now.
Did you reboot after each change of the settings?
Did it happen after an OpenVIX update? We could check if running different builds. Odd that OpenVIX is keeping NTP referenced time on a few of our systems running OpenVIX, but not yours.
Any discussions of a similar issue on the OpenVIX image forums?
He's located in Nebraska. Isn't there a bug or something in Mountain Time zone setting, and you are supposed to select a different one that's compatible, South America or something I read here?
Yes. I did a reboot. There was a firmware update but it didn't fix the problem. Right now it shows 1927 but the correct time is 2058. The time jumps all over the place but only with OpenVIX. I haven't posted to other forums yet.
I would first review the OpenVIX forum .
Does the time issue change if TP is changed? Also, if TP mode is selected? I'm wondering if the image is referencing the TP time rather than NTP even if switched?
My suggestion would be: Back-up OpenVIX, then load a fresh image without restoring. Does the problem happen on a fresh install? If not, apply your OpenVIX restore and test again. Could narrow it down th o your settings vs default image.
I knew that if I messed around I'd mess up my box. I can't get out of the OpenSPA image. I selected a different image from the multiboot menu but it just keeps booting to OpenSPA.
Most of Nebraska is Central Time
Same here with Kansas; only a small sliver of the western part of Kansas is MT.
I'm in the western part of Nebraska which is in the mountain time zone. I'm not sure why you posted the above comment.
I'm beginning to wonder if I need to re-install the bootloader or send the STB in for repair.
I tried the procedure in post#24 of thread Mio Boot Help! using the satdreamgr image to see if it would help fix my problem but nothing changed and I end up rebooting to OpenSPA every time. I can get out of OpenSPA by selecting the slot for OpenDroid but it still brings up a screen about new firmware for OpenSPA before starting OpenDroid. Something got corrupted.
Is it not true that most of Nebraska is Central Time?
Yes. About 2/3, maybe 3/4, is CT.
I just joined this thread...but this seems like a simple fix. Just delete the OpenSPA image from that slot...Do an actual delete, don't just re-install an image over that image. I don't know what you have in your other slots, but I would delete everything that is giving me heartburn and start over. I also run Vix with no clock or time issues. However, I set no timers or do any recording.
I haven't figured out how to do that yet. I understand that multiboot can be edited/modified with telnet or ssh or filezilla or whatever but I haven't found instructions on how to do that just yet. When I ssh when booted into OpenSPA, I can see several executables in /boot that are obviously for images but I'm not sure if I can delete all of them or just the last 3 without causing un-recoverable problems. This fiasco began when I deleted OpenVIX in an effort to re-install it to see if it would fix the time sync issue. It's been downhill since then. The other installed images are TNAP, OpenSPA, empty slot (was OpenVIX), OpenDroid.
How did you delete Vix? Via ssh?
No. I deleted the slot/image from TNAP GUI. I can longer access TNAP now.
