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?

Problem with this workaround is when you lose power or restarted your player and it doesn't get the correct time because you set it to manual and not automatically set time and date through network.
