If you look at most HDTV listings you will see that, for example, 3 am on 10/24/01 is actually on 10/25/01, since it's after midnight on the 24th. Whose idea was that? You can only know for sure , when you see a single piece of information such as "3 am on 10/24/01 ", whether it's on the date listed or the following day, by going to the whole schedule to see it in context. Drives me crazy (Well, OK - crazier). When the rest of the world has moved on to the next date, the TV listings don't change for the next 6 hrs. Not that I watch much TV at that time, but for timeshifting it's an unnecessary hassle to have to decode this weird calendar. Not earthshattering and maybe I'm the only one it bothers...

I only noticed HBO doing this. Bugs me too. 24 hour time or the 12 hour derivitive there of is well established. The day starts at 12:00am, not 6:00am.


I've been burned by not being acreful with this when setting record.

Glimmie, At least I'm not alone! Thanks for restoring some of my sanity!

Showtime does it also - see HDTV Galaxy and Hardrock's helpful post of the OAR upcoming from Showtime - it's pretty pervasive.
