Just testing this whole new MX14 thing, and you run into bugs of course.

I have read about people having their clocks wrong and what not.. never ran into that.. but today I did.

I rebooted and saw the computer said 21:35. Look at the radiocontrolled clock on my desk, says 20:35. Well dernit, hmm.. how to set this clock.. right click.. search..

In the mean time I am talking with a friend on Skype and I tell him what the matter is.

But.. he says.. it IS 21:35!
Yes, really.
*grab wristwatch, battery operated non wifi old fashioned analog thing, it says 21:35*
Well sh*t! :rofl: *hit reset button on radiocontrolled clock and see it change to 21:35*

Lesson learned: it is not always your computer. :p

If you were in the States, I would suggest that it might have to do with the DST change that was made a few years ago. The OTA DVR that I have some times gets confused around the time of the change. Some folks have reported it happens exactly one months prior to the scheduled switchover.
