If the iRivers don't have time & Date, how do they name recordings?
I haven't messed with that yet, but the units must then just use a
progressive numbering system.

My thinking was that maybe Rockbox would be 'smart' enough to detect a
USB connection to the PC and get the current system time from the PC and
set the clock on the Rockbox ... and since a lot of us are savvy enough
users to use NTP anyhow, then the clock on our units could get sync'd
every time we plugged it in - *if* the Rockbox firmware had a means to
get the current system time from the OS.

Heck yeah - bring on the symlinks!
