Re: How to set clock on DVR box

The clock can't be set on the DVR.  It is more common for shows to start either right on time or start early or end late the best thing is to set up the recording to start a couple of minutes early and end it late.

 

As you notice even on some cable channels, the stop and starting of the next show actually overlap with small windows of both shows.

Re: How to set clock on DVR box

The clock time is set from the head end equipment and can't be overridden.

 

If you want the display to show the clock instead of the channel, with the Comcast remote do this:

 

menu

menu

setup

cable box setup

change front LED display from "current channel" to "current time"
