Timezone Changover Failures

Its the end of Daylight Saving in NSW Australia this morning.

I managed to patch my phone the day before so that changed over fine.

A number of devices in my house however failed to change over correctly. I think their operating systems systems are no longer supported or the updates failed to come through automatically.

I would appreciate some help tracking down the OS patches or configuration changes for these ones.


This device broadcasts time to my lounge-room. It clearly failed to update itself.


This device broadcasts time to my kitchen. I suspect if the problem with the lounge-room clock is resolved it may provide some insight into the solution for this clock.


This crept into my room and jumped on me one hour earlier than it should have. This one is going to be a problem to solve I suspect, simply because its going to involve updating a large number of upstream devices that are outside of my direct control. The obvious ones that come to mind are the dog next door and the large ball of nuclear plasma that rises in the sky in the morning.

If anyone knows where I can download the timezone updates for any of these, I believe a large number of people in Australia will be very grateful.
