How to force the system to use UTC ?

I need the time it displays on screen to be aligned with the time i use everywhere else.

Set the timezone in Kodi settings.

Thank nickr,

The timezone however only has locations, closest to UTC is UK/London, However Londen is using DaylightSavings, and is currently UTC+1.

I have not found any static timezones like GMT, UTC, BST in the list. Or am i overlooking something obvious here ?

I don't know anything about Libreelec.

But on every Linux I know, the available timezones are stored in /usr/share/zoneinfo. And there exits a file UTC. According to the Arch-Wiki you should link the zone file to /etc/localtime.

The same you can do with timedatectl set-timezone UTC.

LibreELEC is a bit different to other distros as /etc is read only.

TIMEZONE is kept in /storage/.cache/timezone
