Wrong time

  • Hi Guys,

    Just new to all of this including the raspberry pi so please bare with me.

    I have a raspberry pi 4+ B, i have installed magic mirror using the magicmirror os on an sd card. I have got it to load and to show using vnc for now as i am awaiting my monitor and 2way glass coming. i have noticed that the time is wrong. It is currently showing 1 hour ahead. I have changed the localisation settings etc in raspi config but i cant get it to change. I am assuming it may have something to do with daylight savings however not sure.

    Am i missing something completely obvious?

  • @mmcghee after u define the location you have to set it active, right?

    show the clock settings then ?right? click the location and select ?make active? ( not near my machine)

    your image didn’t show

  • Hi Sam,

    Please see below from rasp config.

    Current default time zone: ‘Europe/London’
    Local time is now: Sat Aug 1 21:20:01 BST 2020.
    Universal Time is now: Sat Aug 1 20:20:01 UTC 2020.

    However time on Magic Mirror is showing 22:20


  • @mmcghee when u open the time, does it display the right timezone under the location? (the little house means that is the current time location set)

    if you edit the location, does it display the right values for timezone

  • Hi Sam,

    not sure, since i am using the magicmirror OS i dont have a desktop interface to check it with. However whenever i change the timezones in config to any region it does not update the Mirror at all.


  • @mmcghee oh, magicmirrorOS… so that means the docker container date/time.


  • thanks sam,

    Think i might move away from magicmirror os seems a bit to complicated compared to running it on raspbian for a newbie like me.
