Does anyone know if this clock radio can be reset and reprogrammed for the new daylight saving dates? Either we need to have Timex give us a solution or tell the Congress to stop changing things.....it messes up the work schedule....

The Daylight Saving Time settings are not user controlled, so you cannot convert the changeovers to the new schedule - you can only change the time manually. Any new clock or clock radio with automatic settings will work on the new schedule.

There was a sheet of paper that came with my clock explaining how to adjust the daylight savings time settings, but I lost it. Anyone have theirs? All i know is it requires that you press an awkward combination of buttons simultaneously, but that's it.

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.
If DST is *already* set to "on" when you reset the time zone to Z-07 (Hawaii), my very recent experience is that the time *still gets adjusted back* by one hour. Now that daylight savings time is over (at least according to the clock's pre-programmed and outdated schedule) I'm hoping that setting the time zone to Z-07 (Hawaii) will completely cancel the automatic time changes from now on. Otherwise, I need to purchase another clock, and it won't be a Timex.
