Let me get this right, because the remote doesn't have an RTC, Philips can not provide the date and time, even though the remote obviously has some sort of clock. The Pronto clearly knows what time it is, Philips just doesn't want to share that information. Doesn't that sound screwy to you?

"new Date()" gives you a date and time, it's just way off. Repeated calls seem to yield internally consistent results (in terms of elapsed time). If it's about accuracy, wouldn't an almost-right value be better than a way-off value?

BTW, thanks for the information! I don't mean to complain to you, but to Philips.
