Streaming Data - Time Problems - Python / Bash

I use Power Bi to visualize Streaming Data and I kinda like it, because of the UI design and how easy it is to configure. But unfortunately I really struggle with displaying the right time in graphs. I recognized the following problems:
-Displayed time is one hour to early, althoug the sent time is correct, I live in GMT+1 timezone, this happens for python and bash scripts
-If a use a python or bash script to update the time, the graph is never filled out completely, just the few hours / mins on the right side

I really like Power BI, but with this issues, it's almost unusable...

How can I fix the mentioned problems?

When will it be possible to display a text in a card box?

@StreamingD

Do you have that problem only when using Python? If so, may you post the python code? I doubt it is the datetime format in the sent JSON, an ISO 8601 format 2017-03-09T00:53:42Z shall work.

Re: Streaming Data - Wrong Time - Pyhon / Bash

I double checked the issue with the report function, the time is corect there if I use a bash script to stream the data. So it's probably a bug of the dashboard streaming data function. However, with the python script I can not even display data in the report function! It's really bad that such functions are not working correctly.

@StreamingD

Have you tried to delete and re-create a new streaming dataset? Could you post the Python script so that I can try to reproduce this issue?

Re: Streaming Data - Wrong Time - Pyhon / Bash

It's really strange, since a few days the time is displayed correctly in the dashboard, but if I refreshed the the page, just one hour is displayed on the right corner. 

 

Thats the way how it looks after having the dashboard page open for 2 hours without a refresh:

That's the way how it looks after a refresh:

I can post the script later
