    Changes for Daylight Saving Time wrong for BRAZIL (GMT-3 Brasilia)

    Hello My Squeezebox internet radio, changed today the time for my region adding +1 hour as if it was for DST.

    I live in São Paulo, Brazil and we are at GMT -3. So my settings in the radio are as BRASILIA GMT-3.

    What happened is that the DST was supposed to change today by adding +1 hour to the time and ending February 19th, but the government decided to shut down that DST setting at least for this year, so the time will continue unchanged for the whole Summer.

    I downloaded and installed today the latest firmware for the radio, but it does not contain the fix to don't change the time today.

    I tried to use Argentina's time by usng Buenos Aires that is also GMT -3 but the time didn't change I don't know why. I had to use Chile's Santiago time DST-4 that in past September entered in DST time by adding +1 hour and then they are at the same time as we are now and so the time is being displayed correctly.

    My question is: when a fix to Brazilian time without the DST change will be available for Squezzebox's firmware ?

    Best regards,

    Flavio

    Squeezebox firmware has remained unchanged for years and I suspect that it will not be changing for this.
    However, I suspect that you could change the timezone configuration file by making an SSH connection

    I do not have access to one from here to check this myself.

    The time on the devices is controlled by the server (lack of RTC chip on
    the hardware...). This must be fixed on the server side.

    Brazilian TZ has been challenging for a while. The change date would
    change every year, not following any rules which can be covered by an
    algorithm.

    I've updated tzdata on the servers. Could you please restart your unit and double-check? Thanks!

    Hi Michael, thank you for working in the fix. Tonight when I 'll be at home will do the reset and the test. Really our DST always was a mess....

    I´ll let you know about the results.

    Hello, I just did a reset and setup again to GMT-3 for Brasilia and the time continues showing one hour more. I had to go Back and setup again for GMT-4 (Santiago, Chile)

    Any clue ?

    Best regards,

    Flavio

    Hmm... could you please tell me the IP address
    Settings/Advanced/Info/Diagnostics/Server Information would give you?

    Hello Michael, will these IP addresses I sent to you help in solving this situation ?

    Best regards, Flavio

    I'm sorry, I didn't see your response... I only wanted to make sure I
    was investigating the correct datacenter (US vs. EU). So I now triggered
    another service restart. This hopefully will make the instanced pick up
    the new timezone data.
