    DOES anybody know why my Tosh video/dvd combi (SD 22 VB) which is only 7 months old has lost a complete hour on the display
    on two occasions since the start of BST in March?
    Is it anything to do with the fact that the reception isnt great (when large vehicles pass the house the t.v signal suffers badly)
    The house is rented and im only there whilst work is carried out on mine.My theory is that the machine isnt picking up the full time signal from the bad reception im receiving.Any thoughts.:confused:

    Your theory seem reasonable:)
    I believe most recent VCR's take the time from the analogue teletext signal they receive so if the reception is poor perhaps when they lose that singal or get a corrupted signal it does cause problems with the clock.

    My tosh has the facility to adjust the clock automatically in accordance with the time change (+/- 1 hr). check your clock setting menu to see if you have this?
