I did a system reset at the controller. It came up with time zone -5:00, using the web interface, the location was Boston MA. A google query showed the time on the controller correct for Boston MA.
I don’t believe it is getting the NTP sync but instead reading the correct time from the time zone. I suspect the time zone of -5:00 is coded into the firmware and since we are not in DST it reads the correct time for Boston regardless of it getting NTP. If I change the time zone to -8:00 it doesn’t read Boston time anymore, instead it reads Boston time -3 hours.
When the controller boots up it has NTP syncing on the screen for 1 minute, then it goes away is this the request timing out?
