Hi Simon,

Our machines use the windows time service modified to a more aggressive synchronization pattern. To do this you will need to run the following commands in an Admin command window. You could also save this into a batch file (.bat) and run that as admin on as many machines as required.

Hope this helps,

We have tried most of the above with varying success. The one we currently use, and which is proving to be very reliable, is here:

Attached is xml import file for windows scheduler.

Hi Simon,

Form the look of your scheduled task the service is being started every hour and forced to resync. If you are using windows 7 the service will then idle and stop causing the time to begin drifting again. If the sync source is difficult to contact this is likely to fail which will then not update the time. I suggest you follow the instructions from my earlier post to simon,

Hope this helps,

John-Micheal

We use a bit of software called NetTime - http://www.timesynctool.com/

That syncs to a time server which I built to run on a Raspberry Pi with a USB GPS dongle plugged into it. This also is our clock in the studios via some small old TVs.
