To change your TiVo’s timezone and date/time follow these steps:
- Get timezoneadj30.tcl. I don’t have access to tivo_canada’s archive, so I had to write my own timezoneadj30.tcl.
- Edit it and change the timezone. It seems that 0=GMT,3=EST
- Run ./timezoneadj30.tcl
- Set the clock using settime, e.g.
# settime 20031123025900 # settime -rtc
- I noticed that if you set the time back, the IR blaster stops working. I’m not proud of my solution:
