Question about Emerson Smartset Clock Radio
I have an older model clock radio (ck s2288) and now that daylight savings times have changed, is there a way to reset to correspond with the new dates-times?
Is there any way to fix this problem without setting the time wrong - until the new time kicks in.
The Daylight Saving dates appear to be hard-coded per the manual:
• Start of Daylight Saving Time:
At 1:59.59 AM on the first Sunday in April, the clock will automatically advance to 3:00 AM.
• End of Daylight Saving Time:
At 2:59.59 AM on the last Sunday in October, the clock will automatically reset to 2:00 AM.
So the easiest thing to do is to change your time zone up or down one for the period between the new DST date and the old -- or you can buy a new SmartSet for about $15. The newer ones do not have the same problem.

I just adjust the alarms to be off the same difference until the time changes on it's own and then readjust the alarm. We usually have many alarms settings anyway what is two more. LOL
