Viewing/Setting Timezone

Hi there,

I’m seeing some peculiar behaviour with SOSE around the timing of when assets are displayed. For instance, an asset shows beyond the time specified in the schedule. This got me wondering whether it was a timezone /daylight saving problem. Of course, it could be user error, but I’m not seeing quite why just now.

The logs in balena show the correct time for the screen UTC + 1 (for British Summer Time) but when you run date at the command line it returns UTC only.

How can I check that SOSE is definitely configured with the correct timezone and daylight saving adjustment? Or is that just a given?
