Q.  How can I get all the computers on my LAN (which isn't connected to
    the Internet) to have the same time.

A.  Designate one machine as a the NTP (Network Time Protocol) server.
    On that machine modify the registry as follows:

System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\Parameters] Value Name: LocalNTP Data Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value) Value Data: (0 = disabled, 1 = enabled)
On the playback machines point to the server via:
Control Panel > Date & Time > Internet Time > Enable
