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 0100 playlist as normal.
  • If using AutoDJ then it will automatically reselect your 0100 hour when the clocks fallback.

Spring Forward

  • Clocks spring forward at 01:59:59 to 03:00:00
  • Therefore your Music Scheduling software should not schedule a 02:00 playlist. This allows PlayoutONE to skip over the 02:00:00 naturally into the 03:00:00 hour.
  • If using AutoDJ then it will automatically select your 0300 hour when the clocks spring forward at 01:59:59
