Well, there is a means to get the current system time (at least
approximately): have a script on pc side, which touches a file when the
player is connected to USB, so that the file access date is updated.
Rockbox could save the internal time when a USB connection is made and
by comparing the saved time with the internal time, a correction could
be made.
