    My MixRack is out of time.
    When i connect to the MixRack with Dorector (no sirface) it shows 9:20 when its 10:40…
    Is there a way to sync also the time?

    this would be very nice for fixed installations, +1

    Even with a surface in a fixed installation I notice that the system loses time over a few weeks.

    Yes, same here. I update the clock at least every two weeks.

    Yes, clock accuracy could be better for sure.

    I couldn’t figure out how to setup the clock. I don’t have surface. Director + ipad only.


    +1, our clock goes out after a while also!

    Here is a solution:
    The dLive searches the network for a time signal (NPT). Like me, you have the problem with the inaccurate clock if you operate the MixPad in a network without a router with Internet access. In this case, you can tell your PC to take over the task of the NPT.

    In Windows, for example, change a few values in the registry and go.

    I have already created a script that does the typing for you.

    @echo off
    echo Setting up the PC as a time server…

    :: Stop the Windows Time service
    net stop w32time

    :: Enable NTP Server in the registry
    reg add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\TimeProviders\NtpServer /v Enabled /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
    reg add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\Config /v AnnounceFlags /t REG_DWORD /d 5 /f

    :: Start the Windows Time service
    net start w32time

    :: Configure the service to start automatically
    sc config w32time start= auto

    :: Configure the firewall to allow NTP traffic
    echo Configuring firewall to allow NTP traffic…
    netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name=”NTP Port 123″ protocol=UDP dir=in localport=123 action=allow

    echo Time server setup and firewall. Configuration is complete.

    Are you saying that you did this, and that the dLive clock adjusts to your Windows time?

    I have done significant investigation into the way the dLive handles time of day, and I have seen no evidence that supports your assertion that the dLive searches for an NTP server.
