Unexpected date and time format on DVR site when using Safari

Ever since upgrading to MacOS 10.15.4 (with Safari 3.1), and also iOS 13.4, when I'm using Safari the dates in the DVR web site look like 25/02/2020 (instead of my usual 02/25/2020), and the times are in 24-hour format (used to be 12-hour).

When I use Chrome, the dates and times are both in my usual format. Also, the formats are as expected when using the app on iOS.

Seems like the new versions of Safari may have broken something?

It’s true. Not only have the times changed to the 24 hour clock, but the dates are in the European format. Perhaps a new staff member from the old country?

iMac macOS Catalina version 10.15.4
Safari Version 13.1 (15609.1.20.111.8)
Channels DVR v2020.02.26.0338 (now there is a date format I understand.)

I've noticed this too. But it's a Safari issue, not a Channels issue. For some reason the new Safari doesn't report the locale properly.

Can you open the web inspector and see what this returns in the javascript console:

window.navigator.language

window.navigator.language
"en"
