This is probably a tech support call however I always like to inquire here first to see if anyone has had the same issues with a fix or can point out my errors.
Since upgrading my old ION the clock is always 2 hours behind after shut down and restart. My experience with CMOS bats is the time and date go way bonkers when the bat is bad and not routinely 2 hours behind.
The time zone is set to Pacific since I am Los Angeles.
Hey Jeff! Is your console on a network? Or do you use only hard-line DMX out the back?
Is there anything else on your network other than the Ion, Xe, and node?
Let me correct that. There is a wifi router on it to use my phone for focusing.
Hey Jeff! Exit out to the shell and navigate to Settings>Network. Scroll to the very bottom of the screen and make sure Time Service is disabled on your Ion. There's a chance your router is serving as a time server and your console is changing its time to match.
This is strange. I replied from my iPhone and it is not showing on the forum. This has happened before also. So replying now from desktop. Hummm.
Anyway; Wow. I will certainly look into that. Makes total sense.
On a side note for Jake or anyone else reading this can you advise if it is a good or bad idea to actually have both consoles; master and back up running with External Time Server running and setting the router to the proper time zone or time and using that to keep both consoles displaying the same time?
when trying to figure out a multiconsole problem it would be most helpful if both console had the exact same time because of the time stamps of the events in the log files. so yes, either time synced to each other or time synced to a 3rd device makes a lot of sense.
