    What to do... ?
    We rely on the freebsd guys to make the new files and then convert for TiVo.

    Should happen soon.

    Thanks for your replies Peter - all clarified nicely.

    PS

    I've just noticed ThomPPPson's Auckland file in this thread.
    Meat, beer, ... what more could a kid ask for? Of course... a TiVo! What were my parents thinking?

    You did better than me...
    I've been waiting for the updated file to put onto another tivo I set up for a mate, but gave it to him in the meantime. Seems that it was there since before I gave it to him....
    Oh well, at least I'll get a dinner when I go round to update the file :-)

    Just to check - this has been recompiled from the updated zoneinfo file?

    Please read the threads following Thompsons Post. The File he posted will not work for those of you connecting to Orac.

    Peter.

    Edit: my bad I didn't realise thomson posted the tz file, I assumed it was just his script.

    Unless I am missing something here, the "timezone file" is the one Thomson attached to the bottom of his post (i.e. /var/hack/zoneinfo/Pacific/Auckland) and is completely seperate from the script in the middle of the post. My understanding is that the timezone file will work with the daily call, while the script will adjust the time when DST changes (instead of waiting for the next daily call to occur).

    Can you clarify why this new timezone file will not work (assuming it was correctly compiled with the new day light saving dates)?

    So everyone give Thomsons file a go.

    NZ Daylight Saving Clarification

    Yes the (binary) "Auckland" file attached to post 4 has the correct Daylight Savings Changes compiled within it. This file should be placed on your TiVo replacing the existing one so that when you next synchronise your clock via a Daily Call, Fixtivotime or one of the modified NTP binaries (ie rdate) it will set the clock correctly.

    The script that is include in the same post is just a backup in case your system is unable to connect to the Internet during the daylight savings changeover. If you do not have your TiVo connected to the Internet, or if your connection is unreliable then I would suggest also implementing the script to avoid missed recordings.
