Default DST Settings On/Off Switch.

Anybody,
Is it possible for you to include an option in the date setting to turn on/off daylight savings adjustment. I live in Jamaica and we do not adjust for daylight savings, so everytime I sync my D2 with Outlook during DST it adjusts my clock forward 1hr.
When I reset the time on my phone all my appointments are thrown off by an hour.
This is driving me CRAZY!
Help please.

Advanced Config 3.3 has a setting to ignore DST as does some other tweak apps.

Default Try this...

use a reg editor to change the setting...
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Clock\HomeDS T
HomeDST=0 (disable DST)
HomeDST=1 (enable DST)

Thanks man. Just disabled auto DST switch using Advanced Config. If only I had known it were so easy. Feel a little like a Duh Duh

Well I guess I'll spend the rest of my evening fixing my calendar for the last time now that I got rid of that headache.

Thanks again

I jumped for joy too soon
This didn't work.
It says it's disabled in Advanced Config but as soon as the phone syncs it advances the time 1hr.

About to try the 2nd suggestion with the reg edit

Your time is syncing with the internet.
You need to go to Settgins Tab\Data Services\Internet Time Sync and uncheck "Get Time From Internet"

That was one of the first things I checked. The box for Get Time from the Internet is not checked.

I used Registry Editor and did this, set HomeDST to 0 as soon as I connect to the computer to sync it sets it back to 1 (enabled).
What next?

There a registry key to enable/disable automatic DST change :

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Clock\AutoDST
AutoDST=0 (disable automatic DST change)
AutoDST=1 (enable automatic DST change)

In fact, Advanced Config toggles this one.
Try and let us know.
