Since you failed to give any kind of version information, I'm assuming 
that you're using MythTV 0.22 or higher.  If so, MythWeb uses the same 
time zone that you've configured on your master backend.

If a frontend displays the proper time and MythWeb doesn't, you need to 
upgrade to current MythTV 0.22-fixes (or, better, 0.23-fixes)--or at 
minimum, clear your MythWeb session.
