If your clock is getting out of sync the best thing would be to use an ntp server. But since that require a internet connection I wrote a small script that uses the time table transmitted by the DVB providers instead.

{{{
#!/bin/bash

UTC=`dvbsnoop -N 1 0x14 | grep 'UTC_time' | cut -c27-45`
date --utc --set="${UTC}"
}}}

In order for this to work you need: * a DVB card in your computer (obviously). * dvbsnoop installed. * rights to change the clock * to have your bios set to UTC time (and correct timezone in linux)
