Hello! I am playing a rosbag after setting rosparam set use_sim_time true and then rosbag play --clock 2017-03-22-08-09-56.bag -l.

I am still getting this error:

   TF_OLD_DATA ignoring data from the past for frame right_upper_forearm_visual at time 1.49018e+09 according to authority unknown_publisher

When running RViz, I can see the images of the rosbag, but they are not continuous. Frames do go missing and I am not getting entire visualization. Any idea as to what could be going wrong?

Are you still running the driver for your robot? I've seen errors like that pop up while running a bag and still running the drivers for a robot.

No. I am not running on the driver of the robot. I did check that one.

have you tried the reset button on rviz before playing a new bag?
