Daylight Saving for Doctor Who fans
« on: September 28, 2014, 09:32:44 PM »
Of particular interest to users of Beyonwiz DP-P2 and similar boxes that don't handle automatic daylight saving changeovers...

If you're recording ABC's first screening of Doctor Who on Sunday 5 October 2014, it is going to record about two hours after the daylight saving switchover, a time when you are likely to be asleep.  If you need to Do Something to your PVR after daylight saving changes, you're going to miss this one.

It might be wise to check your recording of Doctor Who on Sunday, in case you need to record the rebroadcast on Sunday night.

Or there's always iView.

Topfield PVRs running recent firmware will automatically deal with the change to daylight saving.  However, this is not integrated with timers set by IceTV Interactive, so all timers are out by one hour if you have the automatic daylight saving set to on. If it is set to off you are OK. You then do a service reset, do an new service scan, turn on daylight saving tell IceTV interactive to resend all timers, and set up IceTV, then everything is OK.

No IceTV: a few Toppys
