And it has reverted back to pre daylight saving this morning even though I manually changed it earlier.

The headers for your posting also show that you're not in daylight saving time. Have you checked that your system is configured for the correct timezone, with daylight saving enabled? Sylvia. S #### Sylvia Else Jan 1, 1970 0 Canberra Melbourne Sydney daylight ticked. Changed time manually about 1 am but computer seems to have changed it back.Just changed it manually again, will have a look later and see if it sticks. It won't because you've set your clock into the future. It really sounds like your system doesn't know when daylight saving starts. This utility http://download.microsoft.com/download/5/8/a/58a208b7-7dc7-4bc7-8357-28e29cdac52f/TZEDIT.exe will let you examine, and if necessary, change the rules. You'll have to let it unzip itself, and then run the TZEDIT.exe in the target directory: "C:\Program Files\TZEdit\TZEDIT.EXE" by default. Mine (I'm in the same zone as you) says it starts on the first Sunday of October, and ends on the first Sunday of April. Sylvia.

Also when I try ebroadcast tv program, instead of loading program after midnight it loads the before midnight bit (seems to decide it is not daylight saving) J #### Jasen Betts Jan 1, 1970 0 Changed on the 7th oct but computer did not and when I tried to synch it with an atomic clock it reverted to old time. did we change it without telling technical people who seem to think the 28th is the date?

Looks good to me, what do you have your time locale set to?
from your headers it looks like it's may be set to +1000
which is a static zone, not localised.

Seems very strange, but at least you can fix it now.

Note that you'll have to change the timezone to something else, and then
back again, to get the time set properly.

No I just altered the start and finish date when I used your
suggestion, then rebooted and so far it is working.It must have been a
conspiracy by a daylight saving hater altering my stuff.

Is it windows?

XP or more recent?

You are missing a five or more year-old patch.

I don't know if it was produced for W2K or earlier systems.

Indeed, a quick review of your postings (on Google Groups) for this
period last year shows that your computer did switch to DST on about the
right date. I'm assuming you were using the same computer.

It wasn't. My W2K system was up to date with latest when they dropped
stuff and is stuck on AEST. The Linux system changed fine.

You can probably use the same program I pointed F Murtz to to fix it.

GMT+10:00,
the problem turned out that the daylight saving start date was wrong in
my computer for some strange reason, it's now fixed.
