Time display on DVR

I just got a Cisco DVR and it displays the channel all the time. Is there a way to change the display to show the time?

Re: Time display on DVR

You should be able to go into the Menu, then into Setup, and Cable Box Setup. 

The top options will say, Front LED Display, then current channel.  If you push the right arrow on the remote, it will change that to say, Current Time.

That will get the time display to show on the box.

Re: Time display on DVR

The time itself can't be changed or set, it comes down from the cable headend.

 

If you asking about the changing the display from channel to time, it is the same as posted above.

Re: Time display on DVR

Please contact Comcast support, there is no user settings, so they will need to be the ones to solve the time difference, if it's an account code issue or something else.
