About  "Time Zone"

In "Local" mode  the "Time Zone" is ALWAYS at 0h UT because in this case WMeteor is in acquisition (sampling) and the MUST be adjusted in UT hour.

In "Distant" mode you read the DAT files come from another computer (network or import of files).
In this case your computer is adjusted on local time and it is necessary to you change  "time zone" value  to update file date in UT time.
To control if is good, see the sky map. Look if local hour and UT hour is exact.
