I don't have one of these, but have other atomic clocks. They all have time zone settings that you can choose, and the watch automatically adjusts the time to them. Read the manual and look for "Time Zone Settings", or something similar. Hopefully, it will have the option to change those settings, since they are needed in certain geological areas.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Hello Peter. I have just purchased a tx6470 and have had exactly the same problems.
Just subsitute the up/down buttons for hr/rcc.

Regarding the city code just make a guess to a large city near you, the British cities are lumped together London is Lon Glasgow is Gla Edinburgh is Edh.
The day Do. I did a reset of the date and it cleared to the correct day
To get the outside details to reappear, remove and refit battries from inside unit and reset everything.

I have purchased x box live subscripion from a game store and when i have tried to install it on the xbox it asks for which state and zip code as i live in Great Britain we have a postcode not zip code.

as you live in .uk, look for either .uk or Great Britain, as a choice- then enter postcode- if it doesn,t accept it- contact the gamestore, and inquire as to if they understood that you're in the UK, not the US! there may be a misunderstanding at that point!! (if an 'on-line' site!!).
check it out! good luck!
