    Wrong Time
    Now I've spent most my day looking across the Internet and found nothing, so I will post my dilemma

    Basically the Time is an Hour out of Date, it's set to Automatically Update based on time.apple.com but there is a Problem, I can't select the Correct Time Zone.

    So it is displaying the Time for GMT rather than BST (GMT +1), now it was working fine up until Saturday when I spotted this.

    I have tried so far...

    -Resetting the PRAM (I don't even know what that is)
    -Removing System Preferences plist
    -Using Onyx to Repair and Reset everything

    I don't know what else I can do to be honest, bar from Reinstalling but it seems such a harsh step for the time being out of Date by an Hour.

    Now I could set it manually but then all the Websites and related Technology provide me with the Wrong Time which is annoying.

    Anyone had this problem before?

    If it helps I'm running 10.4.9 Intel Core Duo 2 iMac

    Cheers

    What happens if you open date and time from the clock in the menu bar, go to Time Zone, click on Britain somewhere, type in London in case it says Cardiff, hit return and close the window? (It might accept Birmingham.)

    You've tried the various choices of timekeepers, under Date & Time?

    I just tried it here even though I live in the US with 10.4.9. Set it for London and it worked. Don't know what is going on. First I have ever heard of this issue. Will see what I can find. What time is it there right now if you see this?

    Sorry I went to play a few games online...

    UK Time (BST): 11:00 PM
    Time on my Mac: 10:00 PM
    Time Zone on my Mac: GMT
    Location Selected for my Mac: London - England

    Worth noting I tried Lisbon, Dublin, Edinburgh and Cardiff and all came up with GMT as the Time Zone and the Incorrect Time.

    Although I think the fact is currently saying GMT is a bit of a fluke as I selected Paris (CEST) then when I selected Cardiff again it still had the Time Zone as CEST.

    Hope that Helps.

    On a Windows laptop on a computer call right now. As soon as I get home will check and see what is up with the GMT and get back to you.

    I have the same issue on both my Macbook Pro and my wife's macbook. All the settings say BST but the actual time shown is GMT. Seems like the apple euroclock is incorrect?

    We have the same problem in Australia with some States putting back daylight saving one week to April 5 and not last Saturday in March. Sure it will all correct itself this Saturday. Any chance you guys have something similar?
