I completely agree! I have always had a clock displayed on the cable box. Then to have it taken away, because Verizon decided it wanted to. I dont remember being asked if I would like the time removed from my Cable box. If its to "save energy" why is it that I had to go out & buy an alarm clock(that Verizon should pay for) to plug in next to my Set Top Box, now doesn't that defeat the purpose?!
