Has the ETX 80 always had the time chip as standard, or was it a more recent change in design?
Thanks

I don't think the first ones had the LNT module.

Thanks Chris. I assume that for the last several years this has been a standard feature, and not an "optional model?"
It's not really an LNT module I don't think - I believe it is just a chip inside the base that keeps track of time and date.
