Nook DLST Issue Solved - I Think

Since I currently have the "luxury" of two nooks at my disposal AND had to just set one of those up, I think I know what's happening...

 

My "old" nook showed the correct time all along, the new nook when I set it up and selected the Pacific time zone was an hour off.  Everytime I check for content or plugged it into the computer the time could correct itself and my nook was in tune with everything else in the house BUT when I went into settings the thing had reverted back to Mountain time.

 

The time zones are all set for standard time, the nook appears to correct for this during DLST by jumping time zones.  I went to the extreme measure of unboxing the old nook (you think taking it out of the box is difficult, try putting it back in!) and sure enought, that nook also had moved along to the Mountain time zone.

 

Those of you with the correct time showing, please check your settings and see if this holds true.

 

I know I never checked the settings when my nook caught up to the DLST change and I bet most of us didn't.

Sorry FrodAlum, my nook shows the correct time and the correct time zone (Eastern GMT-5).

Re: Nook DLST Issue Solved - I Think

My nook is showing the current (DST) time for my zone.  Settings indicate, (GMT-5:00) Eastern Standard Time.  It is also set to 12 hour mode.

Shoot, I thought we might have it...  I would think it's an old/new issue but then I'v had the other one since 1/26...

Re: Nook DLST Issue Solved - I Think

Mine's a week-and-a-half old, bought off the shelf at a local B&N.

 

I've never touched the time. It was correct when it started up the first time, and it shows the right time now but the wrong time zone: MST instead of PDT. Either one is still GMT-7.

Sorry.  My nook adjusted for DST properly and is still set as GMT -7, Mountain Standard Time.

 

Mine also adjusted to DST & the time is accurate but is set for mountain standard time, not pacific daylight time. Never ocurred to me to look.

Re: Nook DLST Issue Solved - I Think

It sounds like only people on the left coast are having their nooks adjust to Daylight Savings Time by changing the Time Zone.

 

Did anyone in the Eastern time zone have their nook change to Atlantic?

 

Anyone in Central changed to Eastern?

 

Finally anyone in Mountain changed to Central?

Re: Nook DLST Issue Solved - I Think

I'm on the east coast...my nook is set to Eastern Standard Time, GMT-5.  It adjusted itself perfectly for DST.

Re: Nook DLST Issue Solved - I Think

Hmmm.... I'm also in California, and my nook is set to Mountain Standard Time, so it does appear that those of us on the left coast are having our time adjusted by changing the time zone. At a guess, it's probably how AT&T is feeding that information to the nook. I guess it doesn't really matter, as long as the time is correct, but it is kind of odd.

Re: Nook DLST Issue Solved - I Think

I bought my nook yesterday- also on EST.  No DLST.  When I questioned CS about it this morning he said it was a known problem, and didnt have a solution.

I posted the same theory in the first TimeZone thread and got shot down the same way. ;-)

 

I found that after the time zone was set correctly (via the network) that my timezone was off.  (one TZ east of me).  I reset it back, and as soon as I connect with cellular, BAM its back to the wrong timezone.

Re: Nook DLST Issue Solved - I Think

I just checked my settings and as frogalum predicted my time is correct after DLST, but my time zone has changed to adjust for it.  I live in central time zone and my settings changed to reflect eastern standard time to compensate for daylight savings time.  When I scrolled through my timezone choices, there are no choices for daylight savings time, only standard time zones.  I guess it doesn't matter what the nook thinks the time zone is along as the time at the top of my nook is correct.  I rely on the clock a lot to make sure I don't loose track of time.

Re: Nook DLST Issue Solved - I Think

I'm also in Central and my time still shows Central (GMT - 6) but the time did change sometime between Saturday night and Sunday morning.  I don't think it would matter, but I use the 24 hour clock display.

Mountain time zone.  Mine never changed, so I finally gave up and manually switched to Central Time.

Re: Nook DLST Issue

I am in the Eastern Time Zone, selected the Atlantic TZ to get the right time.

An odd work-around, but nothing fatal to me...

Re: Nook DLST Issue Solved - I Think

I actually bought my nook this past Sunday afternoon, just after the DST switch.  When I turned it on, I had to set the time zone.  In order to be right for the east coast, I had to set it for Atlantic time.  I just got back to my college in central time on Monday, and I had to reset it for Eastern for it to be correct.  It's not that big of a deal, but it's a bit annoying to have to remember to manually change the time zone, since I switch between Oklahoma and Virginia for both Christmas and Summer break.
