You can check out this thread. It may help you depending on your SW version & when you canceled you sub. Without a sub the time on the SA gets pretty far off, pretty fast.

To get the clock sync I changed the IP addresses in dbload25 to the IP of a PC on my LAN. On that PC I installed Timeserver ( <http://www.haytech.com.au/TimeServer/timeserver.htm> ). Timeserver runs in the background and keeps updated by pinging a real time sever on the Internet.

Hammer32, I tried running that timeserver, and ran the /bin/ntpdate -b $myipaddr and it keeps returning
2 May 05:31:13 ntpdate[592]: no server suitable for synchronization found

I see that the server is returning a date, because I turned on debug and tail the log file, but it just isn't working for me. Is there any special setting you had to do to get it to work?

Nevermind, apparently if your time server does not trust it's own clock, the client will not do the update. So after I forced a few updates on my time server it worked fine.

Cool, I'm glad you got it working, I had to play around with it for a while too.

How about using a sub'd TIVO for a time server? Is there a compiled timeserver for it somewhere? Any takers? Seems like a slam dunk to use tivo as the master timeclock for your home.

Thankx all!
