    Smile Fixed

    Thanks guys, that's solved it.

    Just for the record, my Tivo had multiple ntpdates , but not the symlink to fixtime.cron. It does now though thanks to your help.

    lrwxrwxrwx 1 0 0 22 Oct 13 20:33 /bin/ntpdate -> /hack/bin /fixtime.cron
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 0 0 59415 Aug 1 07:51 /bin/ntpdate.new
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 0 0 1410 Aug 1 07:03 /bin/ntpdate.old
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 0 0 299512 May 30 2002 /bin/ntpdate.orig

    Ntpdate now works, and the clock setting done during a call ( which I can see from the Tclient log uses ntpdate) also works.

    owe you both one, thanks again.

    Time wrong

    I also have this problem, i.e. Tivo thinks it is 13 hours behind. I have checked that the symlink to /hack/bin/fixtine.cron is as it should be but ntpdate still resets my clock to 13 hours behind. I have edited my /etc/postcodezones to include 02113 and 02115 as shown below:

    # A list of TiVo postcodes and the timezones that they represent
    # Two columns, separated by one tab only.
    #
    02113 Pacific/Auckland
    02115 Pacific/Auckland
    00800 Australia/Darwin
    02000 Australia/Sydney
    02600 Australia/Sydney
    03000 Australia/Melbourne
    04000 Australia/Brisbane
    05000 Australia/Adelaide
    06000 Australia/Perth
    07000 Australia/Hobart

    Any other ideas?

    Cheers,

    Rick

    Try this:

    This is what I get:
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 0 0 24 Mar 16 2004 ntpdate -> ../hack/bin/fixtime.cron
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 0 0 299512 May 30 2002 ntpdate.orig

    if your ntpdate is not the link to /hack/bin/fixtime.cron
    do the following:
    rw
    cd /bin
    mv ntpdate ntpdate.orig
    ln -s /hack/bin/fixtime.cron ntpdate
    ro

    Now run /bin/ntpdate which should give you the right time.

    An update to my previous post - Problem solved

    After digging through some older posts on the subject, I discovered that what was missing was a time zone information file in the directory /var/hack/zoneinfo/Pacific. I had to create the directory Pacific

    # mkdir /var/hack/zoneinfo/Pacific

    Then I found the relevant time zone file on one of my Linux boxes - for me on a Fedora Core 3 machine it was here:

    /usr/share/zoneinfo/Pacific/Auckland

    Logged in to the Linux box I changed directory to /usr/share/zoneinfo/Pacific

    $ cd /usr/share/zoneinfo/Pacific

    then FTP'd it to my Tivo from the Linux box, thus:

    $ ftp tivo.local
    enter blank username and password then
    ftp>cd /var/hack/zoneinfo/Pacific
    ftp> binary
    ftp> put Auckland
    ftp>bye

    back in my Telnet session on the Tivo, changed the timezone file to read/write/execute for everyone

    # chmod 777 /var/hack/zoneinfo/Pacific/Auckland

    Then ran fixtivotime and it appears to be sorted!

    # fixtivotime
    Our postcode is 02113. Found matching timezone Pacific/Auckland
    Offset 46800 for timezone NZDT, daylight saving is 1
    Connecting to time server 207.126.98.204
    t was 3340583072 from server
    t is now 1131641072
    Time is 2005-11-10 16:44:32
    Time set to: Thu Nov 10 16:44:32 2005
    Have a nice day.
