Lingering Daylight Saving Time Issue

Post by GLCamp » Tue Mar 20, 2012 6:09 pm

On my Dish Network Lineup I still have one channel that is one hour off.
Most of the DST issues faded within a few days.

But channel #9846 (MDSET - Mediaset Italia) (Station ID == 69529) is still one hour off.
A program listed to start at 9:00 will actually start at 10:00.

Is there any way to get this fixed?

TIA,
Greg

All our times are provided in UTC so the station may be wrong.

Take a look at the raw data or use http://schedulesdirect.org/getdata to see the raw data. Do the timezone conversion manually and if it's wrong, submit a "lineup support" ticket with the details and we'll report it.

Thanks for the reply.

I had forgotten about the ticket system (don't spend much time changing lineups).

It might be good to link to the the "Report a Lineup Problem" form somewhere on the forum.
If it's already linked, it's well hidden. I couldn't find it in anywhere on the forum, including the announcements.

Again, Thanks!

Programming has now shifted to match the schedule data

Last weekend when Italy switched over to Daylight Saving Time the programming shifted back an hour. Now everything is in sync.

I hate DST. What an anachronism!

A big thanks to Robert K. for his assistance.
