The clock is important to be as accurate as possible.  Also make sure that
you are using as accurate a latitude and longitude setting in Observer
setup.  Even just using two decimal places  after the Lat/Lon value may not
be adequate especially on high passes even if the clock is accurate.  These
two settings will make all the difference.

Have you checked your system clock?  Try https://time.is which is very
accurate.  Some computer clocks can drift badly, and this can cause the need
for constant tweaking, even with very stable satellites.
