I updated my Gentoo based Myth TV system on Sunday, just to make sure all 
was OK. I had already relinked my /etc/localtime to the Pacific-New 
version and the system date shows correctly. I rebooted and looked over 
the myth TV program guide, and my "current time" shadow was correct 
(showed me at 5:45pm that evening, and it was that time according to the 
new DST adjustment. I felt all was good.

I had a standing schedule for 3 different programs that would have went 
off Monday and Today. Each of them grabbed the program one hour too early 
(What was on the program guide at 9pm was shown scheduled to record at 9pm 
but it fired at 8pm and got the show that was on at that time).

Is there another spot in Myth TV that could be tracking time seperately? 
Maybe with only previously set up schedules? (IE; I tried just now to 
schedule a recording on a new show that would start in 15 mins, and it 
fired just fine)
