Hi, my box is connected to the internet but not a TV.
Its date is set to: 'Sat Jan 1 00:25:03 GMT 2000' meaning i can't get onto the web interface.

Using Telnet how can i set the time? Something like this...
date -s +FMT 2019-06-27 22:05
Except i don't know the correct format and don't know what +FMT means...

I think going to the EPG will set the time but i can't see the screen.
Stumped!

If the box is connected to a dish and has a working Freesat connection the Housekeeper boot at 03:00 should set the time, unless the box is recording at that time.

If you want to manually set the time, try the following:

Code:
date -s "2019-06-28 08:19:21"
with the appropriate date and time.

that worked a treat, thanks... except the clock resets after each reboot. i'm guessing these things have a clock battery like a pc?

must have needed a full install first. trying to save minutes has cost me hours. after first time install with a tv plugged in the clock time is being stored.

now onto my next problem.... web interface worked once and never again.
telnet, twonky etc all connect ok, just can't get the web ui to load
