I have something that is occurring on only one of my front ends. About 3 weeks ago, I noticed that when I start Live TV, info showed a 30 second time differential immediately (i.e. 00:01 of 00:31), rather than the typical 3 second differential.

Now, it's up to a 50 second differential immediately when starting Live TV (i.e. 00:01 of 00:51). So, the spread seems o be growing.

Any ideas what might be causing this? It doesn't seem to effect anything, I'm more curious.

I found out what was going on. Apparently when I set up my frontend only machine, NTP was not part of the installation, and the clock was slwoly drifting from my backend server.

ntpdate brought it back into line, and I installed ntp, so hopefully I should be good.
