Auto Time/Date set

When Automatic setting up Date & Time on Blue-ray player *without* an internet connection, where does it come from ?


With computers with internet access or smartphone it get the time & date from NTP server, but what about non-internet connected devices?


Does it get it from broadcasters ? if so , which one?


(basically on computers it tells you which server it connects to)

Well, chances are if it's not internet connected, it doesn't. If it can show a time. It will be wrong. Since the time isn't really important for the player until you connect it to the internet, it doesn't matter.

In the past, VCRs could auto set themselves via a signal sent from a local PBS station, but that was abandoned years ago. They even interviewed some station managers and they weren't aware of those boxes anymore (because some complained the auto set time was wrong).

Cable boxes will get their time from the digital signal like they get the other stuff like guide data.

Some devices may get their time signals from WWV - usually the 60kHz broadcast (the "atomic clock" clocks use this to set their time internally). But generally this is limited to clocks and watches.

Actually, I think i posted in the wrong section, but i think i found the answer:

http://s.productreview.com.au/produc...e11c5d1063.pdf


Automatic

"This unit usually obtains time and date information from
digital broadcasts.
But, if the time is not set correctly, set it to “Off” and
perform “Manual Setting” | Page 82.


however, which broadcast ? would that be any available?
