Forums : QNAP TS-269L Open Remote App problem
This page last changed on Jan 14, 2015 by dadcoop.
Good Afternoon, I am pretty new at this linux stuff although I have many years programming in visual basic and running dos/windows machines. After many many many hours trying to decipher the rather obtuse instructions in the reference manuals, I finally got Open Remote to run on my Win 7/64 bit machine and actually turn a switch on and off using rules (another topic when I have more time).
I installed the Open Remote App on my QNAP TS-269L Turbo NAS with a veralite controller. I then figured out how to get the controller.xml, panel.xml, panels.obj and rules files in the correct places.
The problem that I have is that when I start the Open Remote App using the QNAP App center, it seems to start OK when I look at the boot.log and the dev.log.
I made a rather simple panel using the free open remote designer with only two buttons; turn on one switch and turn it off. It works and the switch goes on and off.
The rules files have simple timer (cron) that turn the same switch on at a given time and off a little later. Naturally they have set times somewhere near when I start the controller so I can see what happens.
The problem is that the logs show the time 5 hours later than it is here. It appears that the app is using UTC time (I am in PA). What seems to be happening is that because the time logs as 5 hours off, I am always past the times I set up in the rules. This was not happening when I was running from the Win machine.
Am I doing something wrong? Is the log file always in UTC time, the QNAP machine is showing the correct local time?, Is there a bug in the App?
It is really frustrating, having to both learn some linux and some rather confusing 'drools' and then just when I think that I have everything working to be back to square -1.
Any help, thoughts, encouragement, ideas or whatever would be appreciated.
update at 5 PM. I was finally able to get the drools ahead of the 5 hour time difference and it appears that the controller really is thinking that the time is 5 hours ahead because the light just turned on using the rule.
