I don’t want internet access to my sprinkler network, so it looks like the controller is useless if it can’t access NTP.
Please don’t suggest that I manually set the date and time. IT CAN’T BE DONE WITH MY HW & SW configuration.
The switches don’t offer it and the Web server does not offer an ‘Advanced’ selection on my Options page as some have suggested.
I could upgrade to 1.8.3 but in looking at the release notes, there are no changes that would add functionality for setting the date and time.
And with my hw version, I think that 1.8.3 is the latest compatible sw version.
Early adopters always pay the price. I’m dead in the water now.
