TimeService.SetTimeZoneOffset now throwing NotSupportedException

19 August 2015 - 06:20 AM

Hi Guys,


I'm porting some applications over to the N3-Wifi, from the N2-Plus. I made use of the TimeService.SetTimeZoneOffset method to provide a timezone offset so that DateTime.UtcNow supplied the correct value. 


Those methods are now throwing a NotSupportedException. 


Is this call, and the related ones (SetUtcTime) going to be reinstated, or are they gone for good? 


If they're gone, whats the recommended approach to getting DateTime.UtcNow != DateTime.Now for everyone not in GMT? 



Anyone using the Simcom SIM5216E (or similar)?

Hi Guys, 


Just wondering if anyone is using the Simcom SIM5216E module (or other SIM52XX modules) in their projects. 


We mainly use the built-in HTTP client, but find that it's fairly unstable. Usually after a number of requests it either stops reading from the netduino or stops sending replies. Sometimes we can recover and wait until the HTTP app starts accepting new request but most cases we need to reset the whole module and re-initialise. It's a pain. 


I'm hoping that others might have experience they can share to help us troubleshoot where the problem might be.
