#1719 closed defect (fixed)

EIT data off by 1 second

I was getting time data from EIT slightly off:

1092    2006-04-22 14:00:01     2006-04-22 15:00:00     Smallville
1092    2006-04-22 13:00:01     2006-04-22 14:00:01     Soul Train
1092    2006-04-22 00:30:01     2006-04-22 01:00:01     The Drew Carey Show

In EITFixUp::TimeFix?(), dt.addSecs() returns a QDateTime with the adjusted time but leaves the existing object unchanged. The attached patch fixes this.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

(In [9781]) Closes #1719. Fixes a bug in EITFixUp::TimeFix?(), that prevented the fix from being applied.

TimeFix? is needed because some broadcasters have not yet adjusted to the new GPS offset of 14 seconds, as opposed to the 13 second offset that has been in effect for the last few years.

(In [9782]) References #1719. Update initial GPS to UTC offset in MythTV to current offset.

On Jan 1st, 2006 the International Earth Rotation Service added a leap second to UTC, but GPS has a fixed offset from TIA time and does not add leap seconds, hence the need for the adjustment. This is the 14th leap second added since the GPS epoch on Jan 6th, 1980.

See for a TIA-UTC table that goes back to 1961.
