How do US TV stations disseminate time to DTV converter boxes? ...And is
this time derived from GPS data, or???
The question comes up tonight because, for some reason in my geographical
area, the time indicated in the TV Guides of all DTV converter boxes is 1
hour behind. We see the same symptom in at least two separate cities,
separated by 70 miles - and regardless of which TV channel we select. We are
seeing the same symptom on several different brands of DTV boxes. This
symptom just began this afternoon or evening.
Any comments or information?
P.S. Side note: WWVB has been off the air many times in the last few weeks.
They're currently off the air.
