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.

In order for this to work you need:
11 4 sb1066 -
* a DVB card in your computer (obviously).
12
* "dvbsnoop":http://dvbsnoop.sourceforge.net/ installed.
13
* rights to change the clock
14
* to have your bios set to UTC time (and correct timezone in linux)
