You have to write code for this but the time change date is arbitrary based on the government. It's easier just to change the time manually.

I have mounted it on a large heat sink because i want to make a salt water one day and i may then nead 6amp pr. Channel!!
But how hot vil it be at that load ?
It's natural for components with large amps to get warm/hot but not boiling hot. Check your circuit for shorts if it gets really hot and the circuit is broken.
