My Vistaquest radio may have a time accuracy issue with the clock.  The clock seems to be off by around two minutes after about two weeks after it is reset using the setting feature. Where does the Listenlive firmware obtain its time (via the internet, the WWV time radio stations in Colorado in the US, or other), and is there a solution for the radio to keep the precise time and not lose its accuracy?  Thank you for your help.

The device has an internal clock.
The firmware can be set to use the Internet (NTP) but also allows manual setting of the time/date to update the system's internal clock. In that case the Internet time is ignored.
When NTP is used, the device has 3 standard NTP servers that it will use: 0.pool.ntp.org, stdtime.gov.hk, time.stdtime.gov.tw 
It will probe the Internet time at various actions, like when you enter clock mode.
