STD/DST Switching
You can select summer time or standard time independently for each city. The initial default setting for all
cities is AUTO.
Normally you should use the AUTO setting because it automatically switches between summer time
and standard time. You should change the setting to STD (standard time) or DST (summer time) in the
following cases.
