    When you save or update a Show, the information shows a new date/time (which it should). But it looks like when you COPY an existing show either to or from an USB drive, it shows the date of the copy, not the date of the original file. THAT makes things very confusing. Is there a way around or can that be corrected?

    Just curious, where are you seeing this date/time? In my experience, the behavior of all operating systems (in this case Linux) is the same, when a file is created or updated, it is stamped with the current date/time.

    In Setup-Memory, I select the show residing in my GLD112, then select information. Then if I have a USB stick plugged in, and copy that show from the GLD to the USB stick, then select that just copied show now on the USB stick and now select information, it shows a different time than the time of the original copy (residing on the GLB).

    If you copy a file in windows or Linux (cp) the date/time stamps are the same.

    BTW, did find a way to crash the GLD. See what happens if while you are updating a show, you plug in a USB stick!

    Hi Bob,

    This is the behavior I see when I run a could of commands on my linux workstation:

    -bash-4.1$ ls -l combine-sal-ir.gif
    -rw-r–r–. 1 rickk users 10950607 Apr 11 14:41 combine-sal-ir.gif

    -bash-4.1$ cp combine-sal-ir.gif test.gif
    -bash-4.1$ ls -lt test.gif
    -rw-r–r–. 1 rickk users 10950607 Apr 12 09:14 test.gif

    In this case the date and time change with the cp command.
