I'm Excited to try out the new apps. Lol I wouldn't have even known about them if I didn't read this.

I though there was a date setting on the Zune HD but I just looked and nothing. It is a bit odd for them not to include one.

Yeah, I tried removing the app from the device, closing the software, rebooting the device and then reopened and redownloaded the device and the app; still says Aug 3 and nowhere to change it.

My husband says this must have been created in Australia or something; I hope they come out with a fix to this or the calendar is next to useless; I don't think I would be able to deal with making everything one day earlier (or later) for appointments.

This is kind of off topic, but Does Anybody know if the Fan Prediction App will be updated to have more sports?

Okay, this is getting freakier; I have 2 Zune HDs (one 32GB which I ran out of space on; and a new 64GB which I just bought from Amazon a couple of weeks ago. The "today" date on the 64GB is Aug 3, but the "today" date on the 32GB is correct, Aug 2.

So how do I get this fixed? Although it was supposed to be new (and packaging was new) when I registered it, it said the warranty expired in October which I resolved with Microsoft and they fixed it. My husband thinks this particular device was either set to sell in Australia (or somewhere in that time zone or close) or it had already been used.

I guess I'll have to contact Microsoft unless somebody knows a registry item or something that will change this. I bought the 64 for a reason and it will be upsetting to me if this can't be fixed.

I wonder if reinstalling the firmware will do the trick (although I don't look forward to having to fill the device back up with everything, it took two days last time. Arrrrrghhhh!!!!!

Okay, this is getting freaky; I forgot I also have a Zune HD 32GB (that ran out of room). I went ahead and sync'd the calendar app to it and it has the correct "today" date - Aug 2). But my 64GB is still Aug 3. I wonder if a firmware uninstall/reinstall would help? I did the update when I got the supposedly "new" Zune a couple of weeks ago.

Make sure you have the correct am/pm setting.

am/pm setting is correct (same as on my 32g that shows the date correct). Besides, I first sync'd it at about 4 o'clock in the morning here and it still said Aug 3 so that couldn't have been it.

ZuneSupport on Twitter suggested first updating firmware (didn't help) then doing a complete wipe. I have so much content it will take me a day and a half to resync it so if anyone has any other suggestions I would really appreciate it. I find it odd that there isn't a way to change this setting on the device. Makes no sense.

Well, apparently there is a bigger problem; as of now my 32G says that today is Aug 3 (and it's still only 8:22 pm on Aug 2).

I have wiped and reinstalled the firmware on this advice many times recently so I doubt reloading the firmware will do any good.

Apparently my 64G is in a different time zone than my 32g and they're both wrong.

I sure wish somebody would come up with a fix for this. I was waiting for a calendar app and now it's useless to me.

1- Great batch of apps!

2- I think it's time to change Apps menu to something more filtered, you know?! Games, Social, Entertainment, Others... just an idea.


Thanks for the post.

That is a great idea, and i think that the Zune could be an even bigger threat to the ipod cuz of that...

I thought that the "pins" section was the Zune solution for app organization. "metro" is designed to get away from lists,or disguise them.


yay! A calender app that won't restart! I have been waiting a long time for this.

My Color Spill app is doing the same thing with replacing the Reversi icon. Is there a way I can fix this? Is this happening to everyone or just some people? It looks like a fun game, but I can't play it

For me, Reversi is still there, and below it is Color Spill, which is also called Reversi, but it still opens Color Spill. Color Spill also has a glitch where it doesn't keep track of turns or the time. (number of turns is always 0 and time is always 00:00)

I have the same problem as cguzma23. Reversi's icon is replaced by Color Spill, while the Color Spill app is missing.
