Gidday Dave and welcome from Australia.

To change your display time, go to "My Home/Main Configuration/Display preferences, and go to Time Offset. You may need to tinker with the number of hours in advance of FT-time; I am not sure of the time difference between American Central Time and South African time.

Welcome to South Africa and to Funtrivia Dave. Hope your stay here is better than you expected.
I think you can set your clock to your own local time under 'My Home' in personal settings but I did it once and dont bother with Daylight Savings Time - too complicated for me. LOL
