eBay Time Sync doesn't work anymore (15.04.2016)

the joyBidder tool doesn't sync to the official eBay time anymore.
Presently the time is 40minutes behind the offcicial eBay time.
Also a manual refresh doesn't help.
Snipes are alyways to late.

        "JB owner passed away from cancer."
        That's very sad.
        My sincerest condolences to his family.
        When does this happen?

        "JB recently has issue with eBay web page"
        This can be fixed by changing the eBay time server in the script files.

        Will this project be continued by someone?

        PLEASE FIX -- I have reported the bug months back --- NO FIX???
        You should not be seeling a product that is broken!!!

        Same here - please fix your product!!!

        When are you going to fix this problem? The program is useless as it stands now. I want my money back.

        I'm still experiencing this problem on May 14th, 2016 - PLEASE FIX OR WILL NOT RENEW!

        This needs to be amended! JB is useless as long as timesync is not working properly and one has to manually "refresh" x mins. before auctions end. PLEASE FIX!

        The developer is gone, moved on to other projects. Despite this, they still collect payments. Vote with your wallet, if you've purchased or renewed recently, perform a charge back.

        You must find out how to fix this issue. Joybidder does not work.

        I have the same problem. Missed several bids that I would have won.

        Lost out on 2 bids because of this.

        Experiencing the same problem on two different machines. This bug makes the program completely unusable. As Michael said, I've tried outwitting it, tried every combination of settings, but as soon as it tries to sync to eBay time, it seems to arbitrarily pick a time out of a hat.

        Same effect here on two computers. Joybidder is useless like this...

      • MichaelMichael commented  · 

        Every click on "time sync" gives a different value - 3xxx, 4xxx sometimes up to 16xxx sec off.
        I thought I'm being clever and set "Sync eBay Time Every:" to 30 minutes and "Refresh List Every:" to 2 minutes since manual refresh does work to fix the time problem.
        But no such luck! 30 minutes at next sync it's wrong again!
        Unchecking "Enable Smart Update" doesn't work either.
        I'll try a manuell Refresh List tonight 10 seconds bevor my bid but as it is the program is useless. If I have to sit in front of the computer then I can bid by myself.
        Please fix it and soon.

        "I've seen the time off on two separate computers as well. Refresh did help though."
        Sometimes the correct time is synchronized.
        Everytime you click the time sync button you get another random time.
        Unfortunately Joybidder makes a sync itself from time to time and get the wrong time.
        In result all bids will be placed at the wrong time.
