Taskbar Date and Time

Post by JoeAtari »

I've been setting up a Falcon with the CTPCI, and I have an odd problem with Taskbar. When I display the date and time, it displays the month only at the very right of the Taskbar (12 for December). If I display the date only, it still displays the month only. If I display time only, it shows the full time just fine. I suspect that this is some kind of control panel or nvram time and date setting issue related to the way I set up the Falcon for the CTPCI. I have never seen this happen before I changed the control panel, CTX, etc. for the CTPCI. Has anyone ever seen this? Thanks!

Taskbar use the date format separator specified in NV-RAM. What is your setting here?

"/" works, just tested on my own CT60. Are you sure it wasn't "\"? Please try setting it back to "/" and test again. And try both bootconf.app and the firetos/CT60 cpx.

In the Language-settings in firetos.cpx.

I tested again.
With boot config using "/" I see only the month. With "." or "-" I see the date and time correctly.
With CT60 CPX "/" displays everything correctly!
Some problem related to boot config.
Thanks!

I guess the problem is related to the CT60's NV-RAM implementation.
