Extended Daylight Saving Time and the ReplayTV

Link: http://kb.replaytv.com/index.php?_m=knowledgebase&_a=printable&kbarticleid=43

This is the weekend, I was gonna sit down and play around with WiRNS's UserTimeZone feature just in case I have resort to this to keep my ReplayTV working...since I hadn't heard a peep from DNNA on when they would make the fix.

But, they released a new KB article last night on this problem. I wonder when they plan to tell their entire user base about it. Or do they expect every single person to call at their own expense to ask for the details...much like how the Indiana DST change was done.

Or word of mouth between ReplayTV users....

Hmmm, I guess I just passed the word from my mouth.... )-o

And sure enough...DNNA did the fix just the way I was thinking of doing it through UserTimeZone.

They are sending a TimeZone string of

CST6CDT,M3.2.0,M11.1.0

now.

The only annoyance was it clobbered my custom settings for controlling my digital cable box....and I didn't write those down before doing the TZ change. Had to try and guess what custom code was used to get things working again....

No feedback yet

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
