This seems to be the RDS encoder failure. What's the brand and model?

In current implementation, the Magic RDS 4 sends 'Real time clock' command without the local time specified (set to 0xFF = unchanged). The encoder probably misinterpretes that as -31. Such errors are quite often also in the encoders that boast full UECP support in promotional materials.

We're using Magic RDS 4 with the UECP-Standard. Somehow the CT is sent with a wrong local time correction. It shows "-31" - obviously not possible!
The Windows Client has the correct local time (UTC+1) and the UTC-Time which is sent is totally correct. Even in the software we choosed the correct LTC - by the way, this has no effect whatsoever.
Do you have an idea what went wrong?
