Quiet Times

Postby feold3 » Sun Nov 15, 2009 5:30 pm

I installed Prowl 1.1.5 a few days ago and am using the prowl.pl script on our Linux network monitoring server to push InterMapper notifications to my iPhone. I've been kicking myself for not finding Prowl in the App Store a long time ago! It's great!

However, the Quiet Hours function is giving me fits. I set the quiet times to 10:00 PM through 7:00 AM., but I still get audible alerts in the wee small hours of the morning. Sorry to say I was too groggy to make note of the times when that happened. Here are the results of some testing I did at about 11:30 AM EST (GMT -5) with the following quiet times settings:

10:00 AM - 11:00 AM Audible Alerts = Yes
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM Audible Alerts = Yes
12:00 PM - 01:00 PM Audible Alerts = No
01:00 PM - 02:00 PM Audible Alerts = Yes

In other words, in order to get a quiet time of 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM, I had to set the quiet hours to 12:00 PM - 01:00 PM. As I write this it is about 12:30 PM. With quiet hours still set to 12:00 PM - 01:00 PM, I started getting audible alerts again at 12:00 PM. In order to stop the sounds during the 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM hour, I had to change the quiet times setting to 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM. Apparently the quiet times start and stop times need to be set 1 hour later than the desired start and stop times.

My iPhone's time and time zone setting (Eastern Standard Time) are correct. Any ideas why this 1 hour offset seems to be occurring? In the mean time I have changed the quiet hours setting to 11:00 PM - 8:00 AM to see if I get the desired 10:00 PM - 7:00 AM actual quiet hours.

The iPhone is still reporting the timezone offset as -4 (daylight savings), so for the server is respecting that. I'm going to look into why exactly this is still the case, since it doesn't make sense.

That's odd. The timestamps on e-mail sent from the iPhone in question show the correct -0500 offset for EST, not the -0400 of EDT.

I am seeing the same problem here. I set the quite times to 10pm-7am and got a notification at around 6:10am this morning. I too am in central time and have had to set the quiet times to 11pm-8am in order to get the desired quiet time of 10pm-7am central.

I'm very confused about why the iPhone is reporting the wrong timezone. I'm looking into it.
