The Qu does not have a realtime clock, so time would have to be dialed in every start or polled from something external (i.e. connected iSomething).
Not sure how a proper daytime would help synchronizing stuff to your videos, in fact, since the internal sample clock can’t be slaved to anything both streams will differ after few minutes. Also wondering what happens with the recorded SMPTE stream which will differ after a while also (in terms of sample accuracy).
I’m doing lot of video work from unsynchronized sources as well and never bothered to establish a global framelock. Of course it will take a serious amount of time synchronizing material from various sources afterwards, I know.
