Something that has bugged me for years - I have to manually set the time

had I the time to watch it ...)

If you're in the USA, you probably don't need cable. What you need for many VCRs is merely acceptable reception of PBS.

Hi Charles, i hadn't heard of this feature. Can you expand on this a little bit? How does it work, what is the feature called? How do marketing people refer to it? Got a URL to an explanation? (just curious)
