    So, I have my new MBP 2011 and it works great, only problem is the clock which in Time Machine always says latest backup is (something):08 and in Plex always only updates full hours and keeps the minutes at :08.

    What happens is that I check Time Machine for latest backup and at 10:04 it says latest backup was at 10:08... And I watch something in Plex and it says the time is 10:08 at 10:04 (or at 10:59 for that matter).

    Anyone else experienced this? Know how to fix it?

    I don't use Windows/Bootcamp etc., only OSX.

    I have MRoogled.

    Bump!

    And it's the same when time is showing in the screen saver... When the clock is 1:55 it says 1:08 and so on. Weird.

    Finally, the easy solution!

    Go into System Preferences -> Language & Text -> Formats
    Click the "Customize" button in the "Times" section

    Ensure that all in the "Short" entry that the minutes field is not hard coded to "08" but instead shows a blue button with a "08" variable. If it isn't, simply drag the minutes button into this field and remove the hard coded value!

    Restart your computer to ensure all applications get this update.

    I have no clue to how this got hard coded in the first place. Hope someone else finds this helpful!
