Setting the time automatically

The FAB Teletext Data Generator/Bridge FT-DGS/FT-DBR is a product that is now obsolete and has been replaced by FAB Teletext Generator.

When the teletext system includes FAB Network Controller the NC Configuration has a setting “Set date&time” under Networks. When this setting is activated the FAB Network Controller will set the time of the Data Generator automatically.

When the teletext system does not include a FAB Network Controller the DGUTILS.EXE program can be used to set the time of the Data Generator.

To set the time of the data generator start the program DGUTILS.EXE on a Windows computer with the following parameters:

DGUTILS ipaddr:SCK  /LOGIN=user,password" 

This command will read the date and time on the Windows PC and set the same date and time on the Data Generator.

Example: DGUTILS 192.168.0.5:SCK /LOGIN=username,password

To set the time of the Data Generator automatically create a batch file (.bat) with the above command and use the Windows Scheduler to run it every 6 hours.
