I believe Menu > Preferences > Date & Time is an option. But part of the situation revolves around the pc's clock. Is it set for Local or UTC or GMT?

Thanks for the link francois. I had intended to mention something that I had discovered recently regarding hardware clock access on that thread, but had forgotten about it. Your mention of that thread just reminded be about it. I have updated it in that thread.
