    Hi All

    daylight savings change not taken.

    Done sever call home and reboots, tried force index - anyone else having issues or is it just not updated on the server?

    thanks

    The problem is most probably in your TiVo not the server,
    One of my TiVos has failed the daylight savings change (recently installed HDD - I forgot to update for dayligt savings) .
    Use the process described here http://forums.oztivo.net/showthread.php?t=1638 it has worked perfectly for me before.

    I am reasonably sure I did do the "allow for Daylight savings" bit of the setup - then again I had to redo it a few times.

    For now I have used settime to see if it fixes itself next call home and if it doesn't I am getting sound disappearing so I may have to get a new hard drive any way (hope it is the HDD and not the PSU going west)

    Interesting I am not the only one.

    Well its clear that my problem is with the auckland daylight savings settings file. My daughters tivo has done daylight saving correctly, and the output of daughtels -la /var/hack/zoneinfo/Pacific/Auckland is 882 as intended, if I run the same file on mine I get 887 or something similar. When I run the script as per the link I can see lots of 'invalid port' errors as it streams through. Is the script pointing to the wrong place for the updated timezone file?

    When you followed the instructions in the link did you get the correct file details of #-rw-r--r-- 1 0 0 882 Sep 21 21:17 Auckland

    Also you will need to run /bin/ntpdate -b -v 132.163.4.103 and from this you should get the result:

    [TiVo [p0] ~]# /bin/ntpdate -b -v 132.163.4.103
    Our postcode is 02112. Found matching timezone Pacific/Auckland
    Offset 46800 for timezone NZDT, daylight saving is 1
    Connecting to time server 132.163.4.103
    Setting the local time to Sun Sep 27 22:55:23 2009
    gmtime gives 109/8/27 22:55:23 [0]
    sending to clock 09/09/27 22:55:23 [0]

    This should show daylight savings is 1 and will set the time.

    No, I get a result of 870, not 882

    Running the code in the link I can see lots of error messages scrolling down the screen, then the Tivo reboots, time unchanged, tried it several times now, much to wife's annoyance!

    I'm not sure what you mean by 'script' in the post.
    What were your results from an ntpdate?

    Daylight saving = 0

    Sorry, by script, I mean the lines of code.
