I keep my PC's clock updated via the Atomic
Timeserver. Would be nice to have the ability to send
the correct time from the PC to the Jukebox.

Would also be nice to see some of the diagnostic info
from the Jukebox on the PC.

Might also be nice to be able to enter owner's name,
phone, etc.

This task depends upon

This would be possible with a file generated and retrieved
from the Rockbox. It would, of course, require an application
on the PC to look at the file and make changes and updates.
The possible uses of this communication that I can think of:
Time/date (as mentioned), calendar/contact synchronization,
text email from an Open Source client… Heck, just about
anything that would require info passed directly from the PC
to the Rockbox firmware.

This has been implemented with a plugin and a perl script.
