date_time.svg not updating

Anyone else have any clients complaining that the date_time.svg file doesn't update, causing them to have to do a hard reboot of the player?
Had to go on numerous out-of-town service calls for this very reason and still no resolve.

    Maybe this is your issue
    Occasionally an HMP does not update the date to the current day, until it is rebooted.

    This is a problem affecting older versions of some date/time templates. To remedy, open the template in a text editor such as Notepad++ and replace the line of code: timer=createTimer( days-now, days ); with timer=createTimer( 60*1000, 60*1000 );

    I can confirm this.

    Related to the new software/firmware, my client had to open project (created with older version of xpress software), replace date_time with the "new" date_time (from the new software template folder) and then it started update the date again as expected!

    Hope this helps!

    so you're saying, make sure the software is updated, once updated, replace the date_time.svg in the project with the date_time.svg from the template folder?

    Oh...

    And remember latest Bootloader and firmware (all on amx.com) for the player itself.
