I set up a simple display using the announcements template I think.
Anyway, I changed the google calendar to my google calendar but the times are an hour off on the display. If an event is at 9:00 am it shows up as 10:00 am.
I checked the time zones and they are both set to Central, but Your central is GMT -6 and Googles central is GMT -5.
How can I fix this problem?

Thanks for the help...

Hello Daniel,

Thanks for checking in with this question.  Before we jump too deep, we should check first things first.  Very often (most cases), the reason the times are showing up incorrectly on the display is due to the time setting on the media player itself.  Can you make sure the date and time, plus the time zone are set correctly on the media player itself?

Hi Daniel,

On, can you please select the Display that is having the issue? Once selected, uncheck "Use Company Address", then under Time Zone, select the correct time zone.

Can you let me know if this works out for you? Thanks!

Thank you both. I unchecked the use company address box and set the time zone there... Didn't do anything.
Turned out the timezone was set wrong on the raspberry pi.
It works correctly now.
Thanks again.
