How come my VCR doesnt automaticly set its time as it does if i use an off air antena or cable? I am not happy with directv at all.The picture is good but thats about it. I think wink really is stupid. I keep it disabled or else the `i` will get in the recording. I would turn wink on if it would set the time on my VCR clock .Guess im the only one out there that notices these things.PBS local stations carry the EDS embeded in the data stream like closed captions.Either directv doesnt get the EDS or the directv reciever dont have the capability of picking up the data. Federal law mandates that they must recieve the closed captioning, but other data is optional perhaps.
