I would suggest that the Archos sends out everything once a new song starts.
The remote device could update its own time display if it has one. The
Archos could even send out a "time sync" packet every 5 seconds or so if
required. The remote can decide what it wants to display from this info.
This way there is very little unnecessary comms overhead, and no polling.
