Hello to all,
New CM-7000PAL owner here. Got the unit yesterday, I am overall pleased. I do have one issue I wonder if others are having. I did read the first post of the Dish DTVPal DVR forum, but not all 400+ pages... A piece of important information: I am located in Montreal, Canada, therefore I do not have the TVGOS, only the PSIP channel information.
I correctly set the timezone to Eastern, and select "Yes" to observing DST (side note: I tried "No", but it does not stay there, if I come back after selecting Done, it is back to "yes").
The current time as obtained automatically is one hour late (shows 17:00 when it is 18:00, as if DST is not engaged). Also, the times in the guide show all programs one hour early (the 18:00 news program is shown at 17:00). I tried changing the timezone to another one that would give me the proper time, but the system does not have any other timezone east of eastern, except Hawaï (wish I needed THAT timezone!). I can change the current time, but then with the guide times an hour early, the guide becomes useless.
I am guessing that the firmware is not up to date with the earlier DST change that started a few years ago and that it might clear up soon.
- Is this a known issue? Is anyone else experiencing this?
- Does anyone know a work-around?
P.S.: HDMI cable tip: When I initially inserted the HDMI cable, it seemed to go in, but in reality, it was not fully inserted. Had to use the composite output to do the setup since I saw nothing on the HDMI output. Only after a good deal searching for some non-existent HDMI output option did I double-check the HDMI cable and found I could insert it even further. I wonder if the first few posts that complained about no HDMI output were caused by this...
