Hi all,

I have problems when running the examples in DC, both in real time and  
without it.

I modify the examples to suit the device I have, so I set a module
digital output (Beckhoff EL2004).

The problem is that the slave never goes to OP state, without giving  
any error message,
but if I comment the line of code:

'ecrt_master_application_time (master, EC_TIMEVAL2NANO (tv))'

so that I'm not updating the time of application, the slave goes to OP  
state and work
correctly, but I get the error line:

"EtherCAT ERROR 0: Received app_time not up to now, But Already active  
master). '

Does somebody know why doesn't the Ethercat slave go to OP state when  
using the
ecrt_master_application_time method?

Thank you

Carlos Jiménez
