Thread: Daily call stuck at 'Setting Clock'

    Daily call stuck at 'Setting Clock'

    Hi
    My 2 tivos are getting stuck on setting clock during the call home.
    I have been doing some reading and it seems to be caused by the time servers used.
    I use a dial up connection and have gone over my monthly time allowance because it gets stuck.
    I am using V3.0r1 image.
    Is there something I have to do on my side to get it working again?
    Thanks for any help.

    can you try
    Code:
    ntpdate -b -v
    ntpdate -b -v 132.163.4.103
    from the command line, then post the results here.

    I get :

    [TiVo [S3] /bin]# Time set to: Thu Sep 6 22:32:32 2007
    Have a nice day.
    Usage: /tvbin/settime [YYYYMMDDhhmm[ss]] [-rtc]

    From what I can see on my Tivo ntpdate in /bin is a link to /hack/bin/fixtime.cron.

    I think things were different back in release 1.0
    It was working until very recently.

    OK
    I fixed it by replacing ntpdate with a new version from the Oztivo files section.
    I think I might redo my tivos with the latest version..... or maybe not, it's working again so I might not touch it.
    But I might get a network card.
    Thanks
