    This is probably a dumb question, but do any digi boxes automatically adjust to daylight saving hours?

    Just got a shock when i came home and the gf told me that the digibox didn't come on to tape Buffy on BBC 2 (she actually managed to figure out how to bring the box out of standby which impressed me). When i checked the time, it was showing an hour fast.

    Perhaps it was naive of me, but i just assumed that such up to date devices as a digi box (of any description) would automatically be able to update to the correct time? Or is it just my Nokia 221T that doesn't do this?

    If no digibox does this, how are they going to cope with the 7-day EPG, if they can't even update to the right time on the 2 occasions a year it changes?

    Well my OLD Philips OnDigital box changed the time from BST to GMT ok, so I would have thought that the newer Freeview boxes would do this as well.
