It seems to have hung in the same place... I am going to reinstall from scratch. I have been using Recalbox for a couple years now, I have a RPI2 and for Christmas got a RPI3. I can't remember if this was the first load or if it was a load and upgrade on the newest PI, but either way, something is jacked up.
I backed up my ROMs and am going to do a fresh install. If I still see the date issue after I will let you know.
I really appreciate the help and info, you all rule!
