Calendar schedule - Summer time update
« on: March 27, 2016, 08:10:33 AM »
Hi.

Noticed that when the summer time changed the scheduler timing was off. I have set the clock on my players to the real time and its ok. The scheduler was -2 hrs off from the regular timing.
Has anybody else had any problems? Is the problem at the mediaserver clock or on my campaign/player time. Everything has worked just fine until the summer time update.

Thanks!

Marks

Well well. Looks like I am talking to myself.

Yes, summer time once again and the player is off by one hour. Windows time is correct but the player cannot handle the hour change.
I need to adjust all my campaign schedulers to match the real time.

Remembering previous years, the one hour off time was corrected after the day changed. Don't know where the player gets its false time. Something built-in or what?


This really keeps coming up every year and it is totally awesome since you need be alert with this one. Just to give you heads up everybody.

the time needs to be synched outside our system, I recommend maybe putting a NTP client on the player.
