Daylight Savings With PlayoutONE

To deal with Daylight Savings In PlayoutONE follow the guide below:

Autumn Fallback

  • Clocks fallback at 01:59:59 to 01:00:00
  • Remove all Time markers and RunToTime commands in the 01:00 Hour.
  • Your Music Scheduling software should create two hours worth of content in the 01:00 playlist. PlayoutONE will then happily play the contents of the 01:00 playlist as normal.
  • If using AutoDJ then it will automatically reselect your 01:00 hour when the clocks fallback.

Spring Forward

  • Clocks spring forward at 00:59:59 to 02:00:00
  • Therefore your Music Scheduling software should not schedule a 01:00 playlist. This allows PlayoutONE to skip over the 01:00:00 naturally into the 02:00:00 hour.
  • If using AutoDJ then it will automatically select your 02:00:00 hour when the clocks spring forward at 00:59:59

Using Music1?

Find out how to accomplish the above by reading this blog post from Steve Warren. 

Using Music Master?

Music Master doubles the 1 am hour. The only thing they suggest doing is removing any time marker commands (as above) that you might have in the middle of this extra-long hour.  Delete it in the Schedule editor. This may also have an adverse effect on your extremely small categories.
