If you mean on the unit itself, only on the Tivo Series 3 OLED.

Yeah, that's why I hold the s3 in such high esteem. I liked the clock (wished it was brighter) and thought the display of what was recording was kinda neat (more of a novelty than something I needed). I'd like to get a small LED clock to put in my console to take its place (I remember there was a long thread on this forum when the S4 came out and lacked a clock display on what would be a good replacement for it).

I just use the TiVo screen clock, works great and tells me if the unit did any re-boots.

Yeah, but you have to find the remote and press a button to see it. Much less convenient than glancing at a display.

i wish there was a display which would be turned off/on based on settings that would show the time. i'm used to seeing the time on my cablevision boxes. so it's one thing i'm losing out on, but i'm getting so much better of an experience using tivo over the crap hardware CV leases.

Two points:

It is only one button, tell me we cannot call that a high level of effort.

The poster was talking about the on-screen clock that you can enable.

Put a clock in the wall, even easier to glance at.

Set up the on-screen clock and you can see it without pressing anything in the upper right corner of your TV screen.

Now that's thinking outside of the home entertainment center.

I press info when I need to see the time. With a TiVo my remote is either always in my hand, sitting on my lap or shelf right next to me.
