Ok, let me re-ask the questions; image here
1. Does the 1st collumn represent the day? If so, what is what there are opnly three different numbers?
2. How about the 2nd collumn, what does that represnt?
3. Using this screen (mine), I should interpert the 1st four as (using a 5 hour offset considering the date);
7:31 = 2:31a,
11:41 = 6:41a,
14:16 = 9:46a,
18:46 = 1:46p
Column 1 [DLID] (like 6) is the type of data in the download (Listings, Ads, etc.)
Column 2 [StID] is the Host Station ID that hosts the download.
Column 3 [Start] is the download start time in UTC time.
Column 4 [Dur] is the duration of the download in minutes.
Column 5 [Qual] appears to be a Quality indicator?
Column 6 [Type] (like 1) is the type of data in the download (Listings, Ads, etc.)
Column 7 [Ver] appears to be Version?
Column 8 [Flags] appears to be Flags?
Your device will attempt to download any DLID type it needs, but it only needs one successful download of that type until it determines it needs that type again, which is usually daily. (Anyone seen DLID's besides 27, 70, 81 & 97 ?). There are one or more StID's in your DLID Schedule that can be used. Once the system gets the type of download it needs, it no longer looks at the rest of the schedule for that type until it needs it again.
Appears things are changing with digital and the new firmware (house of mirrors and blinking light bulb
With analog, you could look at the following diags screens and deduce the following;
- Next Wakeup - wakeup and think about
VBI Data-VBI Info
- DLTimer - next scheduled download time
- LastDLStart - Last time it attempted a download
- LastDLEnd - Last successful download ended
- Column LstSuStrt - Last successful download start time
