    MC Binc, is your unit connecting on a regular basis? If not, please force a connection and let us know the result. Otherwise, please send me a PM with your TSN and I'll look into it.

    Has anyone noticed trouble with the times not matching on some channels? Most of my season passes work fine. Those on Discovery channel seem to be off by 1 hour. I never applied for the patch.

    Time settings would be global. The issue you are reporting sounds more like a lineup issue for that one channel. I suggest you file a report after following the instructions at tivo.com/lineup. The final paragraph in that article links to a form where you can file the report without having to call in for assistance.

    Well this is a nice fresh air breather: until now I thought all customer service problems had to be resolved by phone.

    I will give it a try. Seems unlikely to me to have an error in a channel as popular as the Discovery channel for this long and strange that the problem happened so close to the time change.

    Will I lose my hack directory if the update is applied. Will I need to reinstall my hacks.

    That's great I thought for sure all of my hack directory would be lost.

    Potato and pen.
    I'd say yes.

    So that all will know and benefit, and none shall be left in the shadows, mourning over their lack of understanding on such things.

    Or maybe just so the info isn't lost. *grin*

    Isn't this going to come up twice (four times?) a year, now?

    Yeah, I guess so... but I think, with the way TiVo wrote their script, future DST adjustments should be transparent to the user... so I doubt this thread will get much more activity. Someone might glance ahead in their program guide to a time after an upcoming time change, and entries in the guide may appear to be an hour off, but scheduled recordings will still occur at the proper time. No need to recreate manual recordings anymore :D

    By the way, thanks to whoever wrote all this up in TiVo's Wikipedia entry. Well done!

    Are they off because you think we should be falling back or does the TiVo think we are?
    The Energy Policy Act of 2005 changed both when DST starts and ends. The Fall time change was moved from the last Sunday in October to the first Sunday in November.

    You should read this entire 199 post thread.

    Basically, leave your Tivo continuously conencted to a phone line the next month. The displayed times will be wrong, but Tivo will eventually fix itself (twice) and by Nov 5th, everything will be normal until next March.

    The recordings will record OK, it's just the displayed times that are wrong. When recording from the guide, ignore the displayed times and select the program you want by its name.

    For manual recordings, it's opposite -- ignore the name of the program and just enter the same times that we will go by. If you know the program is on at 6 AM, set the manual recording for 6AM. The manual recordings will look like their wrong, and may even wrongly conflict with some other recording you might have, but your Tivo will (hopefully) fix itself at the last minute, the conflicts will disappear, and everything will (hopefully) be fine. Don't change any season passes or existing manual recordings.

    It's not a great fix for the new DST dates, but it's better than nothing.
