I have been using the DATETIME protocol for about two weeks. Yesterday I notices that it is no longer showing time correctly. I have the timezone set as us/mountain, but the time is +7 which indicates that the timezone is not being properly accounted for.

Just wanted to check and see if there is a fix coming for the time issue. Upon the new release, time zones are seemingly being ignored. Thank you.

If it worked for two weeks why does it not work anymore? Did you change the timezone of the underlying OS?

No, I haven't changed my NAS at all. The issue started right when 2.1 was released.

Use of the timezone was added. You will need to add the timezone attribute to your command.

I have it as:


in the DateTime command, but it is still +7 hours ahead of where it should be.

Your underlying system clock might be on local time also?
Try and put that on utc or try the timezon as utc.

us/mountain is GMT -7. So the fact that DateTime is showing 7 hours fast makes me have to believe it is not using the timezone I have entered. Yes, my NAS is set to local time, but if I was taking 7 hours of the local time, I would be 7 hours behind, not ahead.

Did you try and use UTC as timezone field? Do you have 14 hours then?

Posted by mredeker at Jan 25, 2015 17:02

No, it is the same either way.

I am seeing the same issue, I am in Eastern time zone UTC-5 and my clock is 4 hours ahead and everything I have tried has not changed the clock. My windows controller is set for eastern time zone. Has their been a fix for this?

I wanted to post the solution to my time issue. I had to put the time zone in as "America/New_York", and found this website that has the proper names

Note I only tried it for america and it worked.
