Daylight Savings Time [2006]
« on: March 29, 2006, 08:37:28 PM »

??? Will the CM 15A  interface adjust to Day light Savings time this Sunday morning?  My interface is not connected to my computer. I finally got every thing to work properly and I know something like a little time change will have me going crazy. Also what will happen when the new Daylight Savings schedule takes affect I believe next year falling at a different weekend? Will their be a patch to adjust for this?

Thanks ,
Martiloga

That's a great question ... I don't have the answer ... but I was wondering the same thing.  Hopefully, the X10Pro will give us the answer.

The time change will happen automatically. Since AHP gets the time change info from Windows, it should work fine next year as well, assuming that Windows has been updated to know about the change.

So CM15A will need to be plugged in and redownloaded for the change? as it stores the info in advance?

I believe its this year is the new start time? last year was at the beginning of spring mar 20th (aprox).

If AHP takes its time from Windows, why is the time stamp on the video in 24 hour when Windows is not?

Mystyx: You don't need to connect and re-download. The daylight savings transition information is stored in the interface whenever you download and will happen automatically. The new start and stop times take effect next year (2007).

Loma: The way Windows keeps time internally is not the same as it displays in various places. That said, the time stamp in the video window should display according to your local time and display preference. It's a bug that it displays GMT.

Yes, it was going to be in the last update, but we missed it. It will be in the next one, though I don't have an estimate for when that will be yet.

DST is one of the reasons that I don't set events to happen between 2 and 3 am. It would be missed once a year. Also events between 1 and 2 am would be repeated when changing back to standard time.
