Hi all, my Osmio 4K clock keeps going back to Jan 1, 1970. Does this receiver have an internal battery that needs to be replaced? I use NTP to set the correct time but it keeps reverting to 1970. (I was a freshman in high school on Jan 1, 1970....brings back memories...but that's another story.) Anyone else seeing this?

That's a bug in TNAP 3.2. Load the newest 4.0, and you won't happen anymore.

Or, you can try changing the NTP server to: time.google.com

That worked for me.

Where can I download the current firmware? I'm running 3.0 right now....

If you would rather use Transponder time I see a few on 103w ku band with the correct time or if using an hauppauge atsc tuner most over the air channels have the correct time.
12079 H 29290 103w
12145 V 20000 103w
You would need to set a channel as startup service.
While on channel selection screen move to the channel and press menu 2nd item down Set as startup service.
If you do that you can uninstall the system time plugin.
I use transponder time myself and works good. I'm not always connected to the internet because my internet is a mobile broadband hotspot.

"time.google.com" isn't working for me. I may have to upgrade TNAP 4.0 to see if it fixes it.

I also set: "Sync NTP every" = 5 minutes, "NTP cold start" = ON, and "Use RTC time from deep standby" = ON

Mine is also hard-wired ethernet directly to my router. Perhaps you should also check in your router admin settings, to make sure your routers time is also set correctly.

So far so good 36+ hours after upgrading to TNAP 4.0 and using your suggested settings.

It seems the TNAP 4.0 "Time Fix" somehow migrated to other Images. No more time error issues on OpenViX too.

I have the latest TNAP4 and I'm having time sync problems again. Right now I'm trying north-america.pool.ntp.org (which is what my routers are using and they are perfectly synced).
