View Full Version : Time & Guide CAN'T be fixed.
04-12-2004, 09:34 AM
I have been playing with this for over a week now. I have read other topics about it, but haven't found an answer. My clock and guide in Sage TV is wrong. Right now my computer says it is 11:26. Then I open Sage TV and it my computer says it is 10:26. Sage TV hower says it is 9:26. I sync my computer with time.windows.com. Now my computer says it is 11:26 again. And Sage says it is 10:26. Also now everything in the Sage guide that starts at 8 now says it starts at 7. I have turned on and off evry possible setting I know of (sync system clock with Sage TV server, turning daylight savings time on AND off on my computer) I change a setting, and force a guide update, everything is messed up, I change another setting, force a guide upsate, everything is messed up. I think I am going mad...lol. Anyway because I can't fix this sometimes it records the right shows and sometimes it dosen't. What is the 100% settings I need on both Windows XP and Sage TV to get the times and guide to finally sync up?
Any help will be GREATLY appreciated!! :D

Do you have windows set not to update the time for daylight savings time, that caused a similar problem for some around here.

It is set to automatically update for daylight savings time.

Is windows set to the right timezone?

I live in NJ and have it set to eastern time.

Day light saving time is on
sync with Sage is off
windows syncs with nist.gov and it is correct
I am central time and it is set correctly
the correct time is 12:38 PM and Sage says it is 5:38 PM

is the time_zone= property in your properties file set to anything?

Running XP-Pro with latest SP
Sage version is 2.2.? Down loaded 7 days ago
file is sage.properties
I set it to time_zone=CST
Save and close the file and then reopen and the change is there.
I close the Sage menu and reopen - the time is still wrong. When I open sage.properties file again my change has been overwritten to time_zone=
I change sage.properties file to be read only and the same thing happens since sage changes the file back to r/w.

You have to edit the properties file while Sage is closed.

time_zone=CST now remains set.
stopped service and UI and restarted.
File is correct.
time in upper right corner of the UI is still shows sage 5 hrs ahead of CST.
To Solve the Problem:
Installed latest JAVA as opposed to what SAGE installed during the Sage installation. Now running Jave 2 Runtime Environment, SE v1.4.2_06 and J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 2
This also appears to have improved performance.
