    Try putting 8.8.8.8 as your NTP server.

    Donít put a NTP server at all unless you know what you are doing and need to. This setting is there for people that have systems that canít get out to the internet and have to specify a local NTP server. By default, when you enable NTP, FPP will use random servers from a pool of NTP servers on the internet.

    Not sure how to interpret that statement. I assume you mean: Do not manually enter an NTP server. Please allow the PI to use the built in list. (with this I fully agree)

    The alternative interpretation is: Dont use NTP unless you know what you are doing. With this I would have to say, NTP is probably the simplest way for your PI to stay in sync and should be the preferred way (as opposed to adding an RTC).

    Yeah , maybe I could have been a little clearer. The point is to let let the OS (DNS really) choose which NTP server to use unless you know you need to override the default. We have some people running FPP where the Pi/BBB canít get to a NTP server on the internet due to firewall restrictions so they needed to specify an internal NTP server IP.

    I figured I had to manually enter the Boulder, CO .gov time server because it's closest to Falcon's home.

    i am not sure why i don't have much luck with this stuff that seems simple. I set the clock to 4:24pm (16:24) it is 7:55pm (19:55) now (as i typed that). I restarted FPP, time did not update, i rebooted FPP, time did not update. I shutdown FPP and restarted the pi. Time did not change. So i will either buy the clock thing or just keep an eye on it.

    I appreciate the help

    My controllers didn't either, which is why I bought the RTC module. $10 shipped = peace of mind...can't beat that.

    does the fpp have a path to the internet?
    do you have ntp turned on?
