Scheduled time going into next day

Hi again. This might sound stupid but I'm going nuts and will not be here at the time specified to troubleshoot this.
Say I have a schedule full of presentations, and I have the last one in a day scheduled until 1am. I have the next one begin at 1am. Will the player recognize this and bring the first presentation into the next day? Or should I split them up into two like have the first go to 12am and copy it to go from 12am-1am?
Screenshot attached. I just am worried the same date will confuse the player. Would this simply be avoided if I make the end date 8/26 rather than 8/25? Or can I just keep it like this and it will still flip at 1am on the 26th?

I think it's better if you make the end date to 26th so it will take presentation to next day.

Yeah that's what my sysadmin was suggesting as well.
And then I'm assuming for a "no end date" it doesn't really matter though since there's no dates to worry about, correct?
I'm just paranoid since it's the busiest weekend of traffic coming up and I don't want the sign to mess up! haha

The Player should see that the one Presentation is done, and the next one is scheduled to start, so it should work the way that you have it laid out, HOWEVER, as Prakash pointed out, change that end date to 8/26/2016, that way it will end on the 26th.

Since the 25th 1 am has already passed by the time it starts at 8:15 on the 25th, it will just keep going.

Or, you can just take out the end date and avoid going crazy with all these dates and times!..lol :)

lol good to know my "no end date" theory holds true. we did test it last night as well :)
Unfortunately just for the rest of this work day week I have to schedule the specific dates, but I have "no end date" starting on Saturday so we won't have to worry about it until the next special schedule after this!
Thanks guys!! I felt so dumb but wanted to make sure.
