Panasonic E95 - automatic clock a day late

Panasonic E95

The automatic clock seems to be running a day behind. When I have PDC
'off' and try and set the timer for a programme for say 10:00 am on 8
Jan 2006 - the machine fails to record.

If I put the PDC function 'on' then the E95 records OK - I guess
because the PDC function overrides the clock date/time.

When I looked at the automatic clock setting the toggle was set to 'on'
but the day date displayed was one day behind. Where does the Panny get
the time and date from? It seems that this is one day late.

I have now had to switch the automatic clock setting to 'off' and
manually set the date to the correct date.

But this is annoying. This only started to happen just before
Christmas. In fact the E95 failed to record Dr Who whilst I was
visiting relatives due to this.

Could it be that the Panny thinks 2006 is a leap year?

Many thanks - CJB.

In the U.S., automatic time setting signals are supplied by PBS stations,
and they can and do send out the the wrong time on occasion. I don't know
who supplies the signal in the UK, but apparently it is subject to the
same sort of errors.

Will if you can't fix the problem you could always set the timer to
record your programs one day late then they might record on time.
Looks like it needs to be sent in to be fixed.

Does it pick up its channel and time data from teletext?

Go through each of the channels and see if they all show the right date...

Thanks everyone - I'll follow up with some further investigation. I use
my DVD recorder and t.v. as an alarm clock and therefore set a regular
record time - without the PDC on - for 8.00 am. Over the last week the
timer setting has not been activated because of the machine
automatically getting the date wrong. Sad case I know!! CJB.

Oh, it's not so sad. My alarm clock is the toilet flush when the kids get
up.
