OSCAR: How to adjust day for shift workers?

OSCAR: How to adjust day for shift workers?
With my Sleepyhead software, it was always accurate with my sleep times in terms of the graphs. However, that's not the case with Oscar. With Oscar the day parameter is noon to noon. 

I also noticed a few other anomalies with OSCAR which I can't recall so I have stayed with SH, but now with my new Air Sense 11, I suspect the data isn't compatible with OSCAR. I haven't yet used the new CPAP so I can't check it out. Besides, I didn't get an SD card with my Air Sense, but I did with my 10.

OSCAR 1.3.0 supports the AirSense 11. A few minor issues will be corrected in 1.3.1, which should be out soon.

Will 1.3.1 address my issue above and fully support Air Sense 11? If memory serves me correctly right now the Air Sense 11 is considered in preview.

The AS11 support is still a work in progress. The detailed data graphs and statistics are complete. The time zone handling is incomplete. Various approaches are being explored to handle incorrect time zone settings.

The noon day split will be there until ResMed changes its data storage.

Hmm,. Can you explain why Sleephead displays my data correctly knowing I fell asleep at 6 am and awake at 2pm? Showing events et al during this period of time withOUT the noon split?

Were you using ResMed or Philips machines with SleepyHead?

Air Sense 10. 

With Oscar, the start and end times for one session are split over two days, with noon the dividing line. With Sleepyhead, the graph, date, and time were all one period. So if SH can do it (without my intervention) why not Oscar?

I see no point in showing the Oscar SS. I wanted to show to the naysayers that SH did in fact split the time. Oscar does not. I have stopped looking at the data altogether now that my AirSense 11 destroyed (not just corrupted) my SD card.

I was a reading a comment elsewhere that they Australian CPAP dude who has a YouTube channel is working on creating an alternative software to Oscar. I don't know if it will ever be completed and if it will take into account shift workers or those who sleep past noon.
