This addon causes CoreElec to have the wrong UK time
#1
This is a very strange one. Since the UK time change on Sunday, both my amlogic s905 boxes running CoreElec have been showing the incorrect time. Here's what happens. I am running 4.4.8.3 from the CoreElec repo and have Britain (UK) set in regional settings.

CoreElec boots and shows the correct time if I disable the VBox addon.

If I boot with the addon enabled, the time shows correctly at first. Vbox then imports the guide from clients and the time changes to an hour earlier. To correct, I change the timezone region to another one and then back to Britain(UK). This works and persists until the next reboot.

I have tried to recreate this on my android phone running Kodi 18 but everything works as it should.
 
So, on the one hand the problem is CoreElec related and on the other addon related. I have posted on both forums with this and would be grateful for any info that would help me resolve.

Narrowed it down a bit. Time shows OK on boot with the addon enabled IF there are no timers set. links to log follow when I've worked out how to.

Here’s the link to the log file from a completely clean new install of CoreELEC. At the point the time changes from 2 to 1 o’clock, there’s an error message about the timer I’ve set to record Eastenders.

I'm not sure who should be looking at fixing this so I’ve also be posted this on the CoreELEC forum.

FYI I've had a similar problem ever since Kodi 18 came out.

I'm running Kodi on my Nvidia Shield and the time and timezone (Australia) is all set correctly on both the shield and the vbox - the time in Kodi appears correct UNTIL it loads the guide from the vbox, at which point the time is now out by 8 hours or so. This happens irrespective of whether any timers/recordings are set or not.

The guide (and recording etc.) still works but everything is now shifted time-wise. This only appears to occur after the guide is loaded i.e. if I turn the vbox pvr add-in off then the time remains correct.   

I've been unable to sort out where the issue is as the vbox itself shows the right time and time-zone (in the web interface) so it seems that the problem is inside the vbox pvr kodi add-on somewhere.

So, it's not a problem restricted to Kodi 18 on CoreElec or to the UK.  I think this proves it's a problem with the PVR Client so now we are at the mercy of the addon developers.
