Astro & ntb binding worked one time - after reboot no more


after installing astro & ntb binding according to the wiki instructions (updating the openhab.cfg file, including it in items and sitemap)

  • the information in the front end was displayed correctly. (running OH1.8.3)

After reboot the raspberry both, datetime and astro information were no longer loaded.

Does someone has any idea of what this can be?
Or where to search the problem…

Thanks for help, Frank

What do your items and sitemap files look like?

HI Paul,
here is the example for DateTime and Astro item:

DateTime Date “Date [%1$tA, %1$td.%1$tm.%1$tY %1$tT]”
{ntp=“Europe/Berlin:de_DE” }

DateTime Sunrise_Time “Sunrise [%1$tH:%1$tM]” {astro=“planet=sun, type=rise, property=start”}
DateTime Sunset_Time “Sunset [%1$tH:%1$tM]” {astro=“planet=sun, type=set, property=end”}

and here the sitemap:

Frame label=“Date” { Text item=Date }

Frame label=“Astro” { Text item=Sunrise_Time
Text item=Sunset_Time }

So its more or less the statements from the demo.


reason was a folder problem.
Installation files in the wrong folder.
