Thank you for your suggestion. However, as I stated in my post, "I can change the current time, but then with the guide times an hour early, the guide becomes useless." Even if I set the time manually, the guide times are still an hour early. So when it's 18:00 and the guide only displays what is starting at 18:00, the programs shown are the ones that are really starting at 19:00. So I have no display of what the current program is, and you can imagine trying to do schedule a recording that way... You have to tell the unit to record the program that is one hour later, but when programs are of varying length, it becomes a nightmare real quick. So for now I'm living with the unit showing the time in non-DST.

I'm guessing your too far away to get the Plattsburgh PBS station, WCFE? That shows as your closest TVGOS provider.
Thanks, but my display has no tuners (Pioneer PRO-141FD monitor). As for WCFE, it does not come in, but I'm only using a cheapo small indoor antenna. I only get 4 local stations (SRC, CBC, V, T-Q).
I done some more digging. The PSIP time is GMT. When I look in the diagnostics, I can see the time transmitted by each channel, and they are all pretty much ok (as GMT time). However, at the end of the list, there is the mention "Save: +0 (enabled)", which I believe is the applied offset for daylight savings time, which is shown as enabled but with no offset. I believe that the unit is responsible for applying local time offset and deciding whether or not to apply DST. That would make sense, instead of the station, because if you're living near a time zone boundary, you wouldn't want the station in the other time zone to set your local time or DST flag.
Another tip for special cases: If you want to change the output from RGB to YCbCr, on the HDMI pages, you can toggle between them by using the Page Up / Page Down buttons (my monitor incorrectly detects the RGB signal as 0-255 instead of 16-235). I initially tried to use the arrows to get to what looked like a button with no luck, but the page up/page down correctly changes the setting.
