My iCal is posting all of the shows an hour later than they are...and so is my "My Schedule" page on this website. Under my settings I have it set correctly.

I will pass your message onto the coder. But he may take a little while to respond as he is away from the site a lot.

We are aware of occasional timezone issues in the personalized feeds, it's an issue that would take much time to fix though while it doesn't affect many people; we're likely not going to fix this in the current version of the site.


That's the message I received back from the coder. The new version of the site will be launching pretty soon, hopefully. So all I can do for now is apologise. Another suggestion would maybe be to change your timezone so your time is set incorrectly but the shows are showing up at the correct time.

Did this ever get fixed? I'm still having the same issue.

No as we are still in the current version of the site - awaiting the upgrade.

The problem with the iCal file seems to be in the VTIMEZONE section. The TZOFFSETFROM and TZOFFSETTO entries are the same for DAYLIGHT and STANDARD. Also, the RRULEs have the wrong start and end dates defined in them. I believe this explains the issue seeming to be related to daylight saving time. I changed the VTIMEZONE section to:

Quote:
BEGIN:VTIMEZONE
TZID:America/New_York
X-LIC-LOCATION:America/New_York
BEGIN:DAYLIGHT
TZOFFSETFROM:-0500
TZOFFSETTO:-0400
TZNAME:EDT
DTSTART:19700308T020000
RRULE:FREQ=YEARLY;BYMONTH=3;BYDAY=2SU
END:DAYLIGHT
BEGIN:STANDARD
TZOFFSETFROM:-0400
TZOFFSETTO:-0500
TZNAME:EST
DTSTART:19701101T020000
RRULE:FREQ=YEARLY;BYMONTH=11;BYDAY=1SU
END:STANDARD
END:VTIMEZONE


and changed the TZID in the VEVENTS to America/New_York.

My Google calendar is TZ is set to (GMT-6) Central Time. Works fine now. Total research time including testing 30 minutes. Hope this helps the 'developer'...

Users would have to tweak the generated file and manually update Google with it... not impossible, but it's a little snarly and VERY inconvenient.

I just noticed that beginning on 6 April, the shows on my Google calendar are displayed correctly, without the 1 hour offset due to daylight savings time. This date is suspicious as this used to be the start of Daylight Savings Time.

Is it possible that TVRage was never updated when Daylight Savings Time was changed from the first Sunday in April to the second Sunday in March back in 2007?

I think this was fixed anyway and this might of just been the date put in place for the fix to take effect from. I'm not 100% sure though.
