stream.record query
I have been using the stream.record function to time shift a favoured radio show for some time now. It is excellent.

I would however, like to understand how it references time with respect to GMT and BST. This is because last night's recording was one hour out and appeared to be recording in accordance with GMT, whilst the radio show was streaming in accordance with BST. The recording started an hour late and finished an hour late.

Do I need to compensate by changing the stream.record setting?

RE: stream.record query
Thanks for your appreciative words about the stream recording facility. I have the impression that very few people have discovered this.

The times for start and end recording use the timezone that is configured for the system clock of the device running MinimServer/MinimStreamer. Which device is this? It is possible to set most devices to auto-adjust for the start and end of daylight savings time.

You can check what is configured for this device by looking at the start of the MinimServer log. You should see a line like this:

Current time is Mon Mar 28 15:06:57 BST 2022 in time zone Europe/London

RE: stream.record query
Minimserver is running on a QNAP NAS. I've checked the system time on the NAS and it correctly reports BST.

The only line in the log file that references current time is:-

Current time is Sat Mar 26 10:02:42 GMT 2022 in time zone Europe/London

RE: stream.record query
This means your QNAP is still on GMT. To fix this, set the QNAP to automatically adjust for daylight savings time.
