MacOS 14: DVS/Dante Via ‘System clock has gone backwards’

We have recently encountered an issue with the latest MacOS version where location files on the system have an invalid date. Due to this, on some systems it will not be possible to activate our Dante Via or Dante Virtual Soundcard software.

If you are receiving the ‘System clock has gone backwards’ on your machine, you can validate that you are running into the above error by running:

demo@demos-Mac-mini macOS % ls -l /etc/localtime

lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 42 6 Mar 19:59 /etc/localtime -> /var/db/timezone/zoneinfo/Europe/London – [Gives you the location – i.e. Europe/London]

demo@demos-Mac-mini macOS % ls –l /var/db/timezone/zoneinfo/Europe/London

-rw-r–r– 1 root wheel 2190 1 Jan 1970 /var/db/timezone/zoneinfo/Europe/London

As you can see above, the location of the system for London  is January 1st 1970. You may also see that it shows the year ‘2262’ instead of 1970.

Apple are actively looking into this issue and we hope to have this addressed soon.

Still stuck?
