RE: Daylight Savings TIme
good question! the machines won't change time (resmed anyway) so if oscar thinks it's DST, there might be a problem. idk this but intuitively I'd think oscar and the machine should be on the same time. that means adjusting the machine for DST or unchecking DST in oscar.

OSCAR does not use the DST option in the profile, so setting that option has no effect.

Best approach is to change the time in your machines to match your computer's time.

I will add, change you machine's time CAREFULLY. Every time we have a time change, we get posts about people accidentally changing the date or moving the time too far. Get it right, or leave it alone. The machine is not an alarm clock, and the difference of 1-hour does not change the interpretation of the data. Not changing the time is an option.

I'd opt with don't bother. If you do adjust, do so carefully. I do have to wonder where that daylight went to that we saved.

I had already decided not to bother. I had a Respironics machine previously and wasn't certain on the Resmed. Thanks for the suggestions.

I change my time on Saturday AFTER 2:00 p.m. to plus one hour. It keeps my machine synched with my computer and backup files.

I just wish all the time-changing junk would stop.  Wish they would simply pick a standard time all year round, and stick with it.

I hear there's yet another bill in U.S. Congress to have us stay on DST permanently... I just hope it gets passed this time around.

I have to change SO MANY clocks in our house - and I have to devote a full 30 minutes to that one task, twice a year.  (we have a lot of clocks)

So, that's the ending of my complaint for the day.   Bigwink Too-funny
