Traksat is one of those programs that does not attempt to estimate a
satellite's brightness.

Concerning the time problem. Go to STATIONS, then CURRENT, then enter
correct UTC offset. For Eastern Daylight Time, it will be -4. Here's the
important part, press the Save button, instead of OK. Otherwise it may
accept the values correctly. Traksat has a number of interface quirks like
this that I have learned to avoid.
