Hi,I have several recurring timeControl app. What I have experienced that some of them usually is not started. Sometimes it is started, but it is random how it behaves. Those timers have actions interacting with talkback. Timers are recurring types, week based and should run every workdays at specified time.

For example the timer (29180)is scheduled but that scheduled date is passed, so somehow skipped.

Last Run: 2018-01-02 8:04 pm, Run At: 2018-01-03 8:00 pm



Last Run:                                Run At: 2018-01-04 5:00 am

Current time is Jan-04-2018 12:20:00 PM CET.


Have you noticed similar problem or is it isolated just for me? Can someone check the log what the cause is of not starting the sheduled timers? I can provide the problematic timer IDs to check it: 29180 and 29186

I'm not sure I have correctly understood your problem, so please correct me if I got it wrong.

You have several TimeControls set to execute on a daily schedule. Sometimes of them execute on schedule, while others do not. You're trying to troubleshoot this. correct?

Information that would be helpful:

   What apps are tied to your TimeControl?

   How is the TimeControl interacting with TalkBack? 

Also, stepping back from the immediate issue you are trying to diagnose, can you provide more information describing your project so I can suggest something knowing about the application?

I attached picture when the TimeControl did not run. It can be noticed that the column "Last Run" did not refreshed after the prediefined time elapsed.
Nor my relay, controlled by talkback, switched on or off. The talkback functionality is working as I can trigger it manually from postman or curl and my device act on it.

This relay is for switching the heating. I try to replace my wall mounted programmable thermostat to have remote control possibilities and have original time control.

I attached what is the detail one of my TimeControl settings.

To overcome the issue, I edit the faulty timeControl (did not change anything) and save it. This way it is re-registered. Then I hope it will fired correctly next time.
The last day it was OK, so the problem may be gone. But for me this TimeControl app is not so reliable.
