Installed nightly XBMC 13.0-ALPHA 12 compiled Feb 14 2014
Clock displayed in XBMC is 4 hours ahead of the displayed system time.
Canada is selected in Settings, Appearance, International
There have never been any options appear when Canada is selected,. Such as Time Zone.
Previously I was using the nightly from Feb. 7 2014 and the time was correct.
Any thoughts on a solution?

In Android, the time zone is set correctly to Atlantic time. Android time is correct. I set it to auto select time zone to test is it makes any difference, it doesn't.
Current Android time 4:22 Atlantic time zone. XBMC 8:22
Change time zone to Pacific, Android Time=12:22, XBMC still shows 8:22
Change time zone to Mountain, Android time= 1:22, XBMC still shows 8:22
Change time zone to Central, Android time= 2:22, XBMC still shows 8:22
Change time zone to Eastern, Android time= 3:22, XBMC still shows 8:22
The clocks become equal if I set to London time zone.

Seeing this on the 2-14 nightly build on a Pivos XIOS as well.

You can make easy links to the XBMC wiki using double brackets around common XBMC words: [[debug log]] = debug log, [[Video library]] = Video library, [[SMB]] = SMB , [[userdata]] = userdata, etc

Yea I'm seeing this as well and it does look like the 20140207 build is the last working one. One thing to note is it is not just 4 hours off but seems to vary based on your TZ setting. Mine is 5 hours off and im -5 GMT.

I wasn't able to reproduce this, but you can give http://mirrors.xbmc.org/test-builds/andr...bi-v7a.apk a try.

I can confirm that the time is correct using this build.
