Daylight saving time in UTC?
  • Hi,

    When I try to schedule a 1 hour show to 00:00 March 26th, Airtime schedules it from 00:00 until 02:00. It should schedule until 01:00 because my timezone is defined as UTC (both user and Airtime) and UTC has not daylight saving time.

    If I try to schedule a show to start at 01:00, it does not allow and "jumps" to 02:00.

    The Linux server time is also defined as UTC.

    Ideas?

    This is really urgent because March 26th is arriving and I need to schedule the show.

    Thank you and best regards,

    Rui

    type this command and select your timezone
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata


    you might want to do Time Synchronization using NTP to prevent worry in the future
    sudo apt-get install ntp

    then go here http://www.pool.ntp.org/
    search for a server near you and
    Change the contents of /etc/ntp.conf


    reference article

  • Thank you for your tip :)

    However, my system timezone was already set to UTC.
