My Scheduler Files Do Not Work Always

Postby Henry.G » Sat Sep 01, 2012 1:52 pm

I am playing three different screens on my A540 signage network and use scheduler files to activate the correct screen displaying restaurant menus for breakfast, lunch and dinner. And a fourth screen to play when none of the others apply. Breakfast and dinner work just fine and lunch works during lunch time as expected. But the lunch screen also activates sometimes when it should not and I cannot figure out why.

Here are my scheduler files.

Breakfast:
*/*/*;*/*/*;6:25;8:45;Sun,Mon,Tue,Wed,Thu,Fri,Sat

Lunch:
*/*/*;*/*/*;11:30;14:15;Sun,Mon,Tue,Wed,Thu,Fri,Sat

Dinner:
*/*/*;*/*/*;17:0;19:25;Sun,Mon,Tue,Wed,Thu,Fri,Sat

Do these schedules look OK?

It turns out there is a scheduling problem if the minutes stop field is sooner than the minutes start field, regardless of the hours.

The scheduler file format is:
Start Month/Day/Year;Stop Month/Day/Year; Start Hour:Minute; Stop Hour:Minute; Week Days

So this lunch schedule fails like you are seeing:
*/*/*;*/*/*;11:30;14:15;Sun,Mon,Tue,Wed,Thu,Fri,Sat

whereas this one works:
*/*/*;*/*/*;11:30;14:30;Sun,Mon,Tue,Wed,Thu,Fri,Sat

This problem will be fixed in an upcoming release.
