frenchhomer Times were adjusted today for most irds.

Bayguy Thank you every body I went to the Shaw website and did refresh and time is ok now!

ae_collector Logged in and was able to refresh easily online. FatherInLaw reports time is correct on his 530's and 505 now.

Wouldn't this have caused automatic timers to record the wrong show an hour off when the pvr should have been recording? If so there should soon be LOTS of complaints! And is it the 600 receiver that doesn't have a clock/display? While no recording issues there, the guide will be an hour off for some unexplainable reason for those customers.

LONSat Manual timers have always been that way. Not sure why they have never fixed that issue.

kcowan My manual timers were all out by an hour. Had to go in and not change the time, just enter and exit w/o changing the time.

Hold the power button down on the front of the 605. The lower "dot" on the colon for the time will blink, when it stops release the power button. The unit will restart.

I have done both on my 605 and the time is still an hour behind.

From the same article:

At the end of the summer, when clocks are turned back one hour so that people get an extra hour of sleep, the risk of heart attack fell by 21 percent.
Studies have shown that any negative impacts in the spring are balanced by positive impacts in the fall, resulting in no overall significant impact.

FYI, there was a good programme on Sleep (or lack thereof) on the Nature of Things this week. Probably some repeats available on CBC NW or other channels...

Bayguy Hi our 605 hasnt changed should I unplug it for a while??

Daylight Savings Time

My 630 went forward 1 hour for the accursed DST. I noticed this around 5:00 AM EDST

The sun doesn't rise or set any differently due to DST. If people want to leave work or arrive at work one hour plus or minus, complain to the boss.

It has been shown that DST is statistically associated with an increase of heart attacks. It hasn't caused one in me, but it does get me aggravated.

Daylight Saving Time May Increase Your Risk of Heart Attack
