Clock/Time issues
« on: October 16, 2013, 07:42:19 PM »
Hey all.  My TRF-2460 has started doing something strange over the last few days.   When watching TV the clock will change back 10 hours for no good reason (ie the clock will change from 1806 to 0806).  So far it only seems to happen when I'm watching channel 7 (Southern Cross 7) here in Darwin.  I can correct the error by changing to another channel but i'm pretty sure it is messing with my reservations because a few recordings have been missed since the problem started.

Further investigation has shown that it is the GMT time of the unit that is being changed.  In an effort to fix the problem I have loaded the latest firmware but that doesn't seem to have any effect.  I was previously using an old firmware from 2010 I think and I have had no problems with that until now.  It also seems I can no longer set my time mode to Auto, I'm guessing that is a function of the new firmware.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks.

The most likely culprit is Southern Cross sending incorrect time in its signal.

The only way to overcome that would be to use manual time setting which can have its own issues.

That's the answer I was afraid of.  Lets hope it doesn't last long.

Thanks

10 hours IS NOT the difference between Darwin and GMT. 10 hours is the difference between GMT and the East coast of Australia - if DST is ignored.

There is another way. Call Southern Cross and tell they have a problem (and hope the receptionist passes the message to an engineer who understands the problem).

Another customer in Darwin is having the same problem with her Humax, but the Humax does not have a manual time option.
