    In 'general settings' I like to set my time to manual. Which kinda works. But after 3 or 4 days the time always goes around 5 mins fast. Always. This happens whether I set it to manual or automatic.

    Anyone else experience this? Most annoying.

    FWIW I've seen discussions about this exact concern on Apple's forums. I've never experienced it so I haven't kept up with the cause or resolution but if you perform a search (possibly here...but for sure on the Apple forum) I'm sure you'll find an answer, or at least some company.

    My iPad ends up running a few minutes fast after a week or two. Even after setting it manually. I don't know much about clock technology, but it seems I've spent a large part of my life resetting clocks. So....meh... It is what it is ;)

    My four iDevices are all set on auto time, but they're one minute apart. Goofy.

    Mine is unfailingly spot on. Router I guess.....But I could live with a couple of minutes here and there, everywhere I look all kit in here tells the time :)

    Now that would drive me nuts! All my digital radios are correct, the Televisions are also, my Blu Ray player is also right. But they are all connected to my network!

    You need at least one that's right :)

    Perhaps it's just the natural time shift effect we all suffer down in South Cardiff here from time to time. Either that or I'm being abducted by aliens without my knowledge or prior consent.

    Or you live too close to Dr Who and Torchwood land! . My iPad and iPhone are always out of synch. I just synch them to the Greenwich time and live with it! What was the beach advertised in Torchwood, SJLEWORTHY

    I just go with the time on the iphone as it is always with me

    But yes it is annoying, thankfully it isn't that bad, only single figure in minutes not double figures or hours :) now that would drive me nuts lol

    My pc gains time too, even when set to manual. I can't see where it's a router issue though.
