[mythtv-users] MythFrontend for Windows - Problem with mismatched TimeZone

Hi all,

I've just downloaded a MythFrontend binary for Windows from 

Unfortunately, when I try to run it, it complains:

"Your frontend and backend are configured in different timezones. You 
must correct this mismatch to continue"

My Backend is running on Ubuntu 10.10 and the time is set to Europe/London

My Windows Frontend is Windows 7 and the time is set to (UTC) Dublin, 
Edinburgh, Lisbon, London

I'm guessing that I need to set a Timezone environment variable in 
Windows before I start the frontend, but what is the variable I need to 
set and what should I set it to so that the timezones match?
