Hi there,

I have read the other post about mIRC showing the wrong time. My format is set as [HH:nn] in both "Logging" and "Messaging" However its currently March 3, 2024 8:40am. mIRC shows it as 7:40am which is wrong. My laptop shows the correct time but for some reason mIRC isn't reflecting the same time. Any help on this would be appreciated.

Thanks for your post. To help track this down, please provide the following details:

Which version of mIRC are you using?
Which version of Windows are you using?
Which country/city/timezone is Windows using?

Also, please type the following command into the status window:

Code
//echo -a time: $time timezone: $timezone daylight: $daylight

press the enter key, and post the results in your reply.

Hello Khaled,

If the forum time is UTC, then the the difference between actual time and the UTC - 7 hours according to the post time of the topic of Sunlily. According to Sunlily the time showed on mIRC was UTC - 8 hours which was wrong.

According to my investigation there is an issue in mIRC with these two timezones:

Currently set in mIRC (don't know which version):
(UTC-08:00) Baja California
(UTC-08:00) Coordinated U:niversal Time-08
(UTC-08:00) Pacific Time (U.S. and Canada)

Should be set as in mIRC:
(UTC-07:00) Arizona
(UTC-07:00) La Paz, Mazatlan
(UTC-07:00) Mountain Time (U.S. and Canada)
(UTC-07:00) Yukon

I think there is an issue with the Pacific and Mountain time in mIRC. Please check these two timezones in mIRC Khaled?

I have tested this in Windows 10 and have not been able to reproduce any issues with the time/timezone mIRC is displaying.

However, in order to track down issues like this, I would really need the information I asked for in my previous post.
