rdate program gets the actual time from a network server over the Time Protocol. The program was used in the past on unix like systems, but has been replaced by the more acurate Network Time Protocol (NTP).
With the actual BusyBox versions the
rdate is included by default. On the dreambox the time can be set from a server with following command. Of course a working internet connection is mandatory. It can be useful to set the time on a dreambox manually if the tuner is not connected to read the time from the transponder.
The following example shows the time sync with the server from the Free University of Berlin.
rdate -s time.fu-berlin.de
- Use the DVB Time Plugin (NTP).
