Very weird, i went into the android setup and corrected the clock settings and time zone which allowed by clock to work until i turned it off. then when i booted up again, the clock was not correct . I do not disconnect the power from the system, just power it down. I assume it should be maintaining the correct time.
Nope sorry to disagree here, but on all MX2 boxes, if there is NO internet the date is 1970-01-01 and the time is zero from boot is something like 00:03:00 [3 minues after boot with No internet connected to the box] - when your internet is connected the time will be set to the time zone selected under settings and display under Android desktop and of course XBMC.
