Timezones: problem

  • Problem

I think there's something wrong with timezones: all American TV shows are airing 1 hour before than usual - according to calendar on your site. Maybe because of the daylight saving time? All European TV shows (on BBC, E4, Chanel 4 etc.) are fine. Can you, please, fix this? Thanks!

(For example: My timezone is CET. 'Glee' was airing every Wednesday at 2:00, but now, Trakt Calendar is showing it starts at 1:00. 'The Amazing Race' was airing in 2:00 on Mondays, now it's airing in 1:00.)

By the way, maybe I am wrong (I'm generally overly confused about timezones/daylight saving times) - so I'm sorry.

I know I watched 'The Vampire Diaries' on Friday morning (in 2:00) online - but trakt showed it starts at 1:00.

Same here (Lisbon), it's 23:39 and trakt says House airs at 0:00 while in reality it airs in 1h21m according to tvcountdown.com. I also think the timezone selection should be capital / city based and not by blind offsets, then a simple date_timezone_set($houseMD, timezone_open('Europe/Lisbon')) would fix it (this is just an example of course).

I've also noticed this problem. I'm based in China and I notice that things seem to be an hour off. Since China does not use DST I also think this might be where the problem is.

Maybe this website http://worldtimeengine.com can be used to get the correct time automatically. They have a workable API that can be used in the trakt database.

My shows are also showing up one hour later than they actually air in the calendar, and shows marked watched are off by an hour as well.

It also happens with the UTC -4:30 timezone when marking as seen.

This should be fixed, I re-did the way time conversions are done.
