Here's my 2 cents for what it's worth.
1. It seems to me the DHG writes to disk the clock time consistently. At all times.
2. You lose power and and the last time written was within that minute.
3. The reason the clock would be off by more than a half hour, is because the clock time was the first thing saved during a system crash, and it sometimes would take up to 45 minutes before it was totally unresponsive! So you were left with the choice FPR or plug. Or plug if FPR was unresponsive too!
4. If you lose power, dollar to donuts the time saved will be the time power was removed from the unit! If you lose power at 4:30 PM than the time saved will be 4:30 PM. The only thing that is getting us all confused is the fact that during the removal of TVGOS from the DHG, the DHG became unstable and would have a delayed crash thereby throwing a monkey wrench on our attempts to find a true way of getting the correct time back.
5. Post TVGOS and with firmware .13 and zipcode 00000 setup for cable only, I have not had a crash, not in lineup message and I have been able to set my clock within 30 seconds of the correct time. It has drifted off by 20 seconds in about a month, so I am 10 seconds early for my recordings!
6. Other than that everything is SMOOTH SNAILING!....
