swap out files automatically based on the date

Tue Jan 17, 2012 10:52 am

I would like to change out a set of files based on the season. Currently, the goal is just to swap out sd cards (easy enough). However I read that brightsign has a clock that you can add in. Is there a way to interface the date of the this clock. Does this clock do leap-year compensation.
I am using an HD810 and no network connection.

The time comes from the time server, and yes, it converts for DST.

Yes, you can set the date and time...
Networkable BrightSigns like the HD210 and HD1010 will set their time automatically if they have access to the Internet, assuming the port used to set the date and time, port 123, isn't blocked.

For any unit with a real time clock, you can manually set the date and time using a script, or the files below. Please read the included directions for editing the autoplay.bsp text file to set the date, time, and timezone you want to use.
