    same here, and all the iPLAYTHINGS shifted gear OK, so Mr Apple appears to have it right too.

    My phone did but the computer did not.

    And it has reverted back to pre daylight saving this morning even though
    I manually changed it earlier.

    The headers for your posting also show that you're not in daylight
    saving time.

    Have you checked that your system is configured for the correct
    timezone, with daylight saving enabled?

    It won't because you've set your clock into the future.

    It really sounds like your system doesn't know when daylight saving starts.

    This utility

    http://download.microsoft.com/download/5/8/a/58a208b7-7dc7-4bc7-8357-28e29cdac52f/TZEDIT.exe

    will let you examine, and if necessary, change the rules. You'll have to
    let it unzip itself, and then run the TZEDIT.exe in the target
    directory: "C:\Program Files\TZEdit\TZEDIT.EXE" by default.

    Mine (I'm in the same zone as you) says it starts on the first Sunday of
    October, and ends on the first Sunday of April.

    Canberra Melbourne Sydney daylight ticked.
    Changed time manually about 1 am but computer seems to have changed it
    back.Just changed it manually again, will have a look later and see if
    it sticks.

    Changed on the 7th oct but computer did not and when I tried to synch it
    with an atomic clock it reverted to old time. did we change it without
    telling technical people who seem to think the 28th is the date?

    Also when I try ebroadcast tv program, instead of loading program after
    midnight it loads the before midnight bit (seems to decide it is not
    daylight saving)

    Looks good to me, what do you have your time locale set to?
    from your headers it looks like it's may be set to +1000
    which is a static zone, not localised.

    Mine said last sunday in oct and last in april.
    Who done told it that rubbish?

    Seems very strange, but at least you can fix it now.

    Note that you'll have to change the timezone to something else, and then
    back again, to get the time set properly.

    Sylvia.

    No I just altered the start and finish date when I used your
    suggestion, then rebooted and so far it is working.It must have been a
    conspiracy by a daylight saving hater altering my stuff. :)
     
  13. Is it windows?

    XP or more recent?

    You are missing a five or more year-old patch.

    I don't know if it was produced for W2K or earlier systems.

    Cheers,
    Gary B-)

    XP, I dont let it update but I do not remember having this problem in
    the last few years. It has service pack 3 but no patches since

    Indeed, a quick review of your postings (on Google Groups) for this
    period last year shows that your computer did switch to DST on about the
    right date. I'm assuming you were using the same computer.

    It wasn't. My W2K system was up to date with latest when they dropped
    stuff and is stuck on AEST. The Linux system changed fine.
     
  17. F Murtz

    F Murtz Guest

    Yes, same computer,chalk it up to just one more oddity in life.
     
  18. Sylvia Else

    Sylvia Else Guest

    You can probably use the same program I pointed F Murtz to to fix it.

    Sylvia.

    GMT+10:00,
    the problem turned out that the daylight saving start date was wrong in
    my computer for some strange reason, it's now fixed.
