    I live in an area that does not observe DST, but all my TiVo boxes have just "sprung ahead" I'm screwed.

    This is something only TiVo can fix. I'll miss each and every recording by an hour until they do, unless I choose to manually record everything, in which case, all will be mislabeled.

    Sucks they got it wrong, but are you sure it's affecting your recordings, and isn't just cosmetic? I thought all the schedule dates were kept as GMT behind the scenes, and only converted to local time for display purposes.

    I was wondering the same thing. Certainly national and international broadcasts *MUST* be handled via UTC.

    You are correct, sir.

    Not only is the time wrong, the scheduled recording times are also off by an hour such that it appears the programs will record at the correct times.


    What a relief!

    Yup

    This is the way it was for a lot of us who had older TiVo units when they changed the start end end days for Daylight time several years ago.

    The time was off, but so was the guide. So it all worked.
