Unfortunately the fix does NOT work for the Promise Module. I tried it even though I knew that it would not work. The Promise Module has it's own clock setting independent from the analog clock setting. With a power outage the Promise module clock must be reset separately even though the clock setting for the main TV has already reset from the PBS channel.
I then called Mitsubishi to talk to technical support. What a waste of time and effort!!!! The woman I spoke to had no real clue and had to speak to someone else several times. She then insisted that there is no way to program the date in the Promise Module. She stated that the incorrect dates are coming from the 2160 not the Promise Module. She then stated that I do not have Netcommand. When I told her that I have a Netcommand manual, in addition to the Promise Module manual which shows the Netcommand screens I knew I was in trouble. No matter how I tried to explain to her that there were pictures of the List screen with dates (10/16/01) for AVDisc even though Mitusibishi had not even released an AVDisc at that time. I tried to get service code information for setting the date but she kept on insisting that the date was coming from the 2160.
Needless to say the issue is being bumped up to the next level of support. Fat chance that I will get any results.
I tried to locate a Promise Module service manual on google but I could not find one. Does anyone have a good source???
Is it possible that in the absence of a date from the Promise Module, the 2160 is simply starting at 01/01/01 and incrementing from there, and Netcommand is reading what the 2160 placed on the recording track?????? I'm thinking of disconnecting the 2160, reattaching the 2160, making a recording and checking the date. If it goes back to 01/01/01 wouldn't suggest that the date was in fact supplied by the 2160 in the absence of a true date????
I'm also going to call RCA so that I can be shot down there also.
I have to belief that there is a service mode setup in either the Promise Module or the 2160 which allow one to set the current date.
Any ideas?????? Is there any value to try to contact Indigita????
