  1. Hi Shawn,
    I’m looking how to change the time and date in the original panelview 1000 ( not the newer panelview plus). Also is there a setting that causes the time and date to update? The Alarm Screen doesn’t update the time and date when alarm come in. I would apreciate anyyhelp you can give me on this.

    • Hey Gary,

      I don’t have one of those old units plugged in atm, but I know it is set in the Configuration Menu like the PVPlus, and yes it will automatically keep time while powered on.

      As far as keeping time when powered off, that could depend on the exact model and series, and if the battery is dead.

      I’d check those first before tackling the Alarm time issue – for that I’d recommend checking the PB32 project to insure it’s setup correctly.
