You probably are better off doing time stamping relative to the 5370’s timebase than doing it relative to an external standard. Adding another error into the mix (NTP variability) is not going to help anything. All you really need is a “start of file” time/ date and a number that represents time since start of file.

There is some code that allows a user application to generate content for the little integrated web server. So creating some plots on the instrument itself would be pretty easy (right now a browser connection shows you the display & LEDs and accepts virtual button pushes).
