Date format on web pages

Recommended Posts

Can somebody tell me how to change the American dates on the Recordings web page to European format? Dates already display correctly on the Timer Recordings option of the TV/Radio tab in DVBViewer Pro. I can't find any way to do this in Settings or in Media Server Options.

All my regional and language settings are set to European values. But (only) the dates and times which appear on the Timer and Recordings tabs of the Media Server web interface remain stubbornly in American format (MM/DD/YYYY, AM-PM). Please help me to get rid of them.

Obviously the regional settings for your system account are not set to European values. Did you follow the instructions given by the links above? Did you reboot after copying the settings to the system account?

All my regional system options are set to European values. They have been on European settings for several years, and hence over innumerable reboots. The problem only occurs with DVBViewer web interface. Even there results are mixed. Here's what I see on each tab:

 

Timeline: Date DDMMYYYY; Time 12-hr AM/PM

TV Guide: Date DDMMYYYY; Time 12-hr AM/PM

Channel EPG: Date MDDYYYY; Time 12-hr AM/PM

Search EPG: Date DDMMYYYY; Time 24-hr

Timer: Date MDDYYYY; Time 12-hr AM/PM

Recordings: Date MDDYYYY; Time 12-hr AM/PM

Media (popup windows): Date MDDYYYY; Time 12-hr AM/PM

Status: Date MDDYYYY; Time 12-hr AM/PM

Configuration, Tasks, Links: N/A

 

Can you see the logic in this?

There is your user account on windows (which may be set correctly to european values) and there is (among others) a special hidden account "SYSTEM" on every windows installation. This one is intended for services running in the background and can have completely different settings. The media server is a service running under this SYSTEM account, not your user account. Many pre-installed systems for multi language ask for your language on first start and change it for the user account but leave SYSTEM at US settings.

 

As Griga already wrote, see links above, usually a single click allows to copy your normal user account regional settings to the SYSTEM account and everything should be fine. You are not the first/only with this issue and the solution is always the same.

Thanks Griga and Harald for your help with this issue. I should have said that I already copied my settings several times to the system (and default) accounts. It makes no difference. Do youknow if there is a way I can check the current system account settings?

 

To illustrate, I've added screenshots of my System settings, current formats (French) and an extract from the DVBViewer channel EPG web page, complete with US dates and times. What am I doing wrong?

 

Thanks again for bearing with me on this.
