I recently got a JVC HR-6855EK after my Hitachi 950 broke luckly for me it was still under warrenty and I only had to pay a extra £20. When I switched the mains plug with the Hitachi the VCR would get the time signal from a TV chanel. When I got my JVC home I ran the auto set up and it got all the channels programed in and the time was set. The next morning I switched the mains power on and to my great suprise the clock didnt get set. I left it for a whole hour and it still didn't set. The "Just Clock" option is switched on. The VCR is a S-VHS ET model.
