Maybe the OP is a clock addict. :sure:
Same here, Major feature over everyone else.
Who worries about time (retired here). :sure:
"Short answer": there isn't a need for a digital display, so adding one would cost more.
I think the simple answer is that with the changing times there is less need for a digital display. Many DVD players dont even have them anymore. More than anything it appears to be a cost saving measure.
EDIT: more or less what VOS said.
and everyone else that replied.
It would be useful if the screen saver included a clock large enough to be seen anywhere in the room, and the cost to install.... an hour of programming time, or less.
At the same time...they could play Disco music in the background of the screensaver and complete the retro experience.
Na, if they wanted to really be retro, the clock would have to flash 12:00 perpetually.
Retired, but busier than I was when I worked by a good portion. I just need to learn how to say no (too many volunteer jobs).
Ok, I need help with that one. Please explain that!
He said he liked them separate so that when they added one, it was easily noticed. I just told him we didn't need that, we had the SixtoReport.
Honestly, I've seen more problems with that method. Even he gets frustrated when his parents will tune to the low number SD channel instead of the HD.
As for a clock, I turn down all my LEDs, so would there too. I had enough trouble with my Eye of Mordor record light.
I usually find a lit clock very distracting near any TV, and that was always the first thing that I'd turn off, same as I do with the lights on every DirecTV receiver.
Boot, turn the lights off, go ... it also helps to know if the box has been re-booted for any reason (because the lights will be back on) ... and it's optional so it's there for those that like it.
Tv messages and banners aren't enough huh? Separate channel number is terrible, IMHO.
I've got a wall clock above the TV.....
In the same "rack" with my DVR is a VCR AND a DVD recorder..both of those have clocks that are set to "--:--" LOL
There's a wall clock in the den which adjoins my family room, I can see it from the couch.
