[FFmpeg-user] Exact time of start recording

Trying to put timecode onto my recordings, but have no clue how to do so 
Obviously, when I fire FFmpeg, it will take some time before the first 
incoming frame is actually recorded / encoded.
Is there anyway to find out (related to system time) when that happened, so 
I can add TC after the capture?

An alternative could be to create a dummy file named to the new recording, 
and have FFmpeg to ask to overwrite.
But then, can I trust the time between me saying 'Y' and the first recorded 
frame will always be the same?
