Thanks Dave, champion answer.

I reckon I'll switch the recorder to Daylight Savings early,and make the below adjustment to the pre-existing recordings. That really is the magic maths I was trying to get my head around.

Edit the existing reservations that are currently on the Topfield to move their start time forward 1 hour AND extend the duration 2 hours. This works for March and September.

Topfield / Dealing with Daylight Saving when you are away
September 29, 2016, 11:24:21 PM
So I've been through daylight savings changes many times and used the various guides on the support site with success. Depending on what is scheduled, these tend to involve some resets, or manual edits to recording times, and a reset to daylight saving in the Time settings.

This year I leave on holidays on the Saturday morning that daylight savings starts and I'm away for 3 weeks. I have Saturday PM recordings I want to safeguard, as well as a few through the week (each week).

If I reset the Topfield 2400 to daylight saving time before I go, then I guess my Saturday PM recordings will be an hour out. 
If I don't take any action at all, then I guess my first week's recordings are also an hour out, but since I won't be setting the Time to daylight saving, can I expect the recordings sent after daylight savings start to also be an hour out?

Is there a strategy that can deal with the issue that involves no on-site intervention?  Or, since I do have someone (not tech savvy) housesitting for me, is there a simple step they may be able to perform - eg. delete all recordings, set to daylight savings, turn off/on, and I'll resend recordings from the web app?
