No, that's good. It's a binary file.

OK, in that case, I'm confident that Myth knows what time zone it's in.
I take it when you say Myth isn't changing the time zone, is that just
based on the fact that your listings still show the wrong times?
I think the problem is that you just need to re-get your listings data.
Run the following (as the user who runs the backend):
mysql -umythtv -p mythconverg -e 'TRUNCATE TABLE program;'
