Topic: Some apps not updating; not showing current info: more info for T/Sing
Cetain apps will not show current info, I know the AccuWeather one has been one that sees this. I noticed my C8 is not always up to date with that app. Here is some info that may help with trouble shooting...
I am setting up another C8 for my parents for Christmas and noticed that not only was Accuweather on Tuesday still (today is Wed) but the Woot widget showed the wrong stuff too. However other widgets seem current (like NOAA) I had to reboot (w/ power button, not pull power) to get it to show the currecnt stuff/data.
Here is how their unit it set up. It wakes up at 5am (CST) with a channel called "WakUp" then at 8am it goes to a channel called "Main Channel" then at 11pm it goes into Dark Mode.
So in theory the unit should have pulled fresh info for "WakeUp" when it lanuched this morning @ 5am after being in dark mode. (note: the channel it was playing before Dark Mode was "Main Channel" that was invoked at 8am the prevoius day).
Could this be the issue, that the unit is not pulling the current channel from the Chumby server? I would guess not, it's almost like even though the clock is right on the unit, it has the wrong date to work from (as far as current data for channels) but then other channels seem to work? Strange. I assume perhaps a problem with the code in the widget then, but I think it works on my C1 and ole school Chumby, but I need to verify that first.
So in any event, today it seemed to be fixed by powering the unit off and then back on again. I think the biggest challange is that this "bug" is not easy to troubleshoot since it seems some days it's not there.
Any ideas Duane?
Caveat: I know I have seen traffic about this, but searched and could not find much or what character string would fetch them, hence the this new post.
