It works ok with both my consoles, is anybody else having this problem?
We had DST a couple weeks ago and all went ok with both Cumulus1/Envoy and CumulusMX/Vue console

Enjoy,
Paul

I decided to set the console clock to 1am in the ini file.

After looking at my logs, I see this:

2019-04-17 01:00:28.314 Console time set OK
2019-04-17 01:00:48.432 !!! loop data not received, bytes received = 0
2019-04-17 01:01:00.444 !!! loop data not received, bytes received = 0
2019-04-17 01:01:14.486 !!! loop data not received, bytes received = 0

It does that every time the console time is set.

The other thing i've noticed, is that my reception stats reset twice. It does it at midnight, but then when I check at 1:15am, it has reset again.

Yes, setting the time on the console is costly in processing power, it will not respond on the serial interface for some time whilst it processes the new time. Setting the time also always resets the reception stats.

Ah ok. It all makes sense now.

That puts my mind at rest. :)
