DC-MP3 - running one hour behind

Hi,

The DC-MP3 card I have worked perfect last year and for Halloween...however, for some reason, it is now running 1 hour behind. The show is starting and ending 1 hour earlier that I scheduled it to. I have redone the 'set time' file several times with no luck. Any thoughts?

Thanks,

Mike

Did you reset the time after Halloween?

Remember, we set the clocks back first Sunday in November.

Good thought. Now, I have re-installed a new 'set time' file since then, is there some other way to reset the time?

thanks,

Mike

Did you try to set the clock via the Hardware Utility, as per the instructions on page 15/16 of the manual?

If so, and your times are still running 1 hour behind I would contact LOR Support (and then schedule my shows one hour ahead so things line up!)

Hi - well, I connected the Director to the Hardware utility and set the time to the correct time.

However, my concern is that the Director is not recognizing the 'set time' file. Anyone have any similiar issues?

Thanks,

Mike

Connect to Hardware Utility and have it searc for controllers. Once if finds the one(only hook up one) then set the time. You can also place a time on the sd card if using the mp3 player to run the show

Mike,

Did you ever resolve this issue? Someone called me last night with the same symptoms. They used the SD card to set the time, yet the shows are running one hour behind.

The time is set from the computers clock right? Is their computer clock set right? Just a thought.

I'd be willing to bet they'd notice their computer off by an hour. However, your post caused me to think of something. I have nothing to back up this theroy, nor can I test it (since I don't own a DC-MP3.)

For those who are having a problem, what is your DST settings set to? My idea is that perhaps their computer didn't handle the DST change correctly, and they just set the clock back an hour. Perhaps, somehow, LOR is reading the DST setting in when it changes the time.

So, if they are supposed to be -0500 right now, perhaps their computer is still set for -0600 (Behind GMT, that is.)

I realize it's an off the wall theory, but one that might be worth looking into to.

(Or, their time zone is set wrong, and somehow that's affecting things!)
