Digital Clock Display on TV Screen

Hi is there anyway I can display a Digital Clock on my TV 

My wife is disabled and likes seeing the Time which is displayed permanently during both BBC and ITV breakfast programs but then once programs finish there is no more time displayed on screen 

I have a V6 box but TV is not a Smart Tv

Please can anyone help

Re: Digital Clock Display on TV Screen

Sorry, no that's no a features the Virgin TV boxes have.

I'm not sure many TVs do it either.

Would a simple option not to be to get a normal digital clock of some description and place it near the TV?

Re: Digital Clock Display on TV Screen

It can be done on V6.

I no longer have a V6 but will try and see if I can remember the ‘Easter egg’ key sequence.

It only lasts until the next reset when you have to key it in again.

It also displays the running time when watching recordings.

Perhaps someone else can remember the key sequence?

Re: Digital Clock Display on TV Screen

I had it written down. It’s a key sequence on the V6 of seven keys which must be input evenly. If you don’t succeed the first time, try a few times until you get the hang of it. Must be done from a live channel with no red button displayed. The clock uses the screen position, top right, where the red button appears. When the clock is there, the red button won’t display but still works.

Here are the seven keys:

OK Back Play OK Back 9 OK

Good luck.

Re: Digital Clock Display on TV Screen

That’s OK.

Just ignore what’s happening on the screen.

Press each button as evenly spaced as possible.
