Setting the Time and Date on Hyperdeck Studio

When I'm finished recording to my SSD, I notice that the date and timestamp are no correct. Is there a way to set the Hyperdeck's time and date so that my recorded video files are correctly timestamped?

Hi Anthony,

I was wondering the same thing. Did you ever get an answer to this?

I´m curious about the same thing. Today I recorded on a Hyperdeck Studio Pro and the file is timestamped 15. jan 2017, 23:58.
And I am not working on a new "Back to the Future"-film :D

Got the answer from Blackmagic support today. I guess they never bother responding to these posts.

What you have to do is connect your Hyperdeck to your computer (via usb) and change any setting in the Hyperdeck Setup software and save the settings. You have to have at least version 4.4 of Hyperdeck Setup.

This will update the internal clock of the Hyperdeck to sync with your computer's date and time.

I just tried it and it worked for me. :)

What Brandon said. BMD told me to update to the latest firmware (5.1 as of this writing) and make sure to uninstall the current version first. Then install 5.1, go into the setup utility and select a different codec and save, then select my preferred codec and save again. This corrected it for me.

One thing I noticed is when I updated my mini/micro converter firmware to the newest version, it somehow affected the Hyperdeck's time stamp. I had to set it again. It may be necessary to reset the Hyperdeck when new firmware is installed for any of BM's products? Something to check anyway.
