This is a welcome feature. The only thing I don't like is the fixed date
"2003-01-01 12:00:00".

For a quick change:
- How about using the date the CVS build instead?

For a better change
We've also discussed saving the date/time settings (f.e. when powering
down the unit.) so you could use those. Even if they are not saved, it would
be very useful to check the root directory for any recording. If one is found, then
the date / time should be set after that recording to keep the recordings in order.

Just my thoughts...
