After change of battery, the RTC has lost its settings
and time). Wouldn't it be nice to at least set the date
and time to that of the .playlist_control file or the
most-recent.bmark file when the date/time is found to
be invalid at startup (boot)?
This would prevent the annoying task of setting date
and time after a battery change most of the time.
If you could add some additional seconds - lets say 30,
the time at least needed for changing the batteries :-)
- this would be fairly precise, when auto bookmarking
on stop is activated and the player has been stopped
befor switching it off.
Even better would be in my opinion an option to present
the 'set time/date dialog' after presetting it from the
filedate. But this is the 110% solution.
Thank you!
This task depends upon
