That's just funny!! Think of all the people with regular VCR's that are
flashing "12:00", and now with a VDR it's still wrong !! :-)
VDR uses your system clock, so if you adjust the time on your VDR machine the
VDR program will pick it up properly.
You can use ntpdate if you have a permanent connection, but I believe VDR can
actually sync the clock with the time signal received by the DVB card! I
haven't tried that, but if your broadcaster sends the right time, it might be
easy street from there on :)
Otherwise look into the "date" and "hwclock" commands, if your clock always
drifts a lot remove "/etc/adjtime" and start with a fresh one, but there is a
good HOWTO on time keeping.
If you can though, just sync using ntpdate or the DVB stuff :-)
