    Hello All,

    Just a quick query. I was looking at recording Stargate SG-1 on Sunday today and thought I would use the inbuilt freeview tuner in my Panasonic DMREH60 to program it.

    The program guide however gave the wrong times, it seemed to be consistently out by one hour, not only on one program but across the board. I checked out Saturday night and tonight which was fine.

    I do know that the panasonic does an update through the night. Does it change the time on the timer when the freeview time is corrected. Does anyone elses recorder have this problem.

    regards

    David H

    Remember the clocks go forward tonight by one hour maybe this has something to do with it?

    Actually, it's BACK by one hour. An extra hour in bed, with the addition of darker mornings and afternoons, and more accidents on the road as a result!

    My girlfriend pointed this out to me, I always forget about it! Does not explain why it does this though. I have a panasonic freeview box connected up as well and that is displaying the times correctly. I guess I will find out in the morning.

    Cheers

    and it's surely a fallacy that you get an extran hour in bed, as you lose that hour on the Sunday evening (the clock says that it's 11pm, your body says it's midnight).

    Well if you're waking up on an alarm then you get an extra hour. If you're waking up whenever then you get no more

    Need my extra hour, hardly slept last night for an unknown reason!

    Oh and also, spring forward....fall back

    Trust me John, the mornings are NOT brighter in winter due to the angle of the Earth relative to the Sun.
    7am in June/July is not the same brightness as 7am in Nov/Dec. Equally 4pm is not the same either, hence why statistically there are more accidents between those hours than the same timeframe over the summer months.
    Of course, weather could be a factor, but it's not always sunny in summer - at least not in the UK!

    I was saying that the clocks going back make the mornings brighter not darker as you suggested. If it got light at 7.30am this morning, that means it will be light at 6:30 tomorrow morning.

    Yes, that's the logic, but the Earth's angle of tilt and distance from the Sun almost negate that, and will do by the beginning of Dec.
    If the Earth and Sun were in constant relation to one another, then your logic would prevail.

    FWIW (nothing to do with this thread :)) I got up earlier this morn! but taken everything into account usual Sunday morn time (late).

    Feeling a need to contribute to this thread (daylight hours), the days from now till Feb end* will see darker morns and eve's whether the clocks go back or stay as they are :D

    *Days do not get noticably lighter before.

    If you're not averse to a slight americanism, you can remember it easily as "Spring forward, Fall back"
