I'm confused, or missing something. I have a calendar event for 6 PM to 8:00 PM EDT (Philadelphia PA, which is in the same time zone as America/New York, so why does the calendar reminder have the line showing 04:00? 

When:
Thursday, 24 May 2018
6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
(GMT-04:00) America/New York ß

TIA - Bob


It doesn't.  EDT is four hours difference from Greenwich Mean Time, so it lists your time zone as "GMT minus 4".  GMT is the same timezone as UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) and examples of offsets from UTC are given here:

with details on UTC-4:00 here:
