Rasplex time issue
Ok, so I've seen this issue once or twice on forum posts without a definitive answer as to what the issue is. Generally its passed off as a "network" issue, which is asinine, if nothing else on the network is having time issues.
I tried setting up Rasplex 188.8.131.52 today and I'm about to lose my mind. Installed the Rasplex image to my new SD card. Installed the SD card in my new PI3, powered on and everything worked fine, however I was not able to login during the config. No biggie, finished, verify my wired connection was good and was able to ping from my desktop. Then I realized the time was off, no biggie, updated to my timezone (US/America/NY) and the time was fine. Rebooted and...time was reset. Now, no matter what I do, the time resets to 7pm EST. Everything else on the network is fine, nothing has a time issue. I also configured a static IP, set DNS to 184.108.40.206, and manually configured all NTP servers to US ones, nothing. For **** and giggles I even plugged it directly into my modem, same. And I've tried all this on 3 fresh installs. SO, before I go use this as expensive target practice, anyone have any OTHER ideas, then "its a network issue".
