DL12L - setting time via console

Post by Taki » Tue Mar 27, 2018 5:39 pm

Hi!

hitting "ts" should allow me to set the time on my DM12L (the info screen shows RTC, so I assume it has a clock). I've tried to enter date and time but while I get no error, whatever I enter, the time and date are never set.

Is there any description how to do that via console?

Kind regards,

Taki

If you just enter ? as a command, you get a help screen:

Code: Select all

Firmware DM15_M1B_V26

?          Help
p          Key press
s          Dump memory
l          Load memory
ct         Console timeout
t          Get time
ts         Set time
td         Update time
d          Toggle display output to console
b          Read battery voltage

Type '<command> ?' for params
Uptime 23s
VOYAGER >>
Note the prompt: "Type '<command> ?' for params.

So try: ts ?

Code: Select all

Set time

<YYYYMMDD> <HHMMSS>
VOYAGER >>
So there you have it, although the < and > signs are misleading because you don't actually type them.

To set the clock to today's date and the time now (as I'm writing this and in UTC+0100 time zone:

Code: Select all

ts 20180327 184810

Thanks for the fast reply. It works. After entering "ts ?" I thought I had to enter "ts" and then (after hitting enter) the date.

Time and date are set now :)
