We tested with players in the field (set to pst) and a player in my office (set to pst).  It also changes in the actual studio pro application so my guess is there is a more prevalent problem.  As far as the slideshow, we tested many configurations however I am not sure we tested the slideshow function after 5pm.  Not sure why that would impact it since I am only displaying information for 1 day using offset.  But, I will test it sometime over the weekend after 5pm with the slideshow enabled.

I am experiencing this same issue.  I have verified that the component is in Slideshow mode and that the player and the Google Calendar are both in the same time zone (CST) .  Mid evening we start seeing appointments for the following day.

Until now this issue haven't fixed. No matter what will i do, setting the same time zones for both player and google calendar, setting a specific time i.e. 7am to 1130pm. Still at around 6pm the event for the next day will be displayed. :( :( :(

Both Google calendar and player should use UTC+0 or GMT+0 as the timezones
- Google Calendar's timezone should be set to UTC+0
- Events will be encoded in local date/time
  ex. 4pm GMT-7 is the scheduled start - encode it on the calendar as 4pm UTC+0
- Player's timezone should be set to GMT+0
- Player's Automatic Date/Time setting should be turned off but date and time is set to local date/time
  ex. actual time is 2pm GMT-7; while pc's timezone is set to UTC+0, set date/time as 2pm

Thanks for posting this...I have been struggling with this problem for a while.
Does this timezone change impact the player if I am using the scheduling functionality for playback of the general campaign or any other time-based features?
