Set the Clock on Your TV

Not only does your TV let you watch all your favorite shows, it can also tell you the time. You can have your TV automatically set the time when it's connected to the internet and adjust for Daylight Saving Time or you can set the clock manually.

You must set the clock manually if the power cable is disconnected and then connected again, the Clock Mode is changed from Auto to Manual, the TV is not connected to the internet, or no broadcast signals are received.

Set the Clock Automatically

If you don't want to bother with setting the time, just have it done automatically. Using the TV remote, select Settings > General, and then select System Manager. Select Time, and then select Clock. Select Clock Mode, and then select Auto to set it automatically.

Note: This function only works when the TV is connected to the internet or with an antenna.

You can also change the time in Auto mode by selecting Time Offset, adjust for DST (Daylight Saving Time) and select your Time Zone. However, if you disabled DST when you went through the initial setup on your TV, you will have to turn it on by navigating to Settings > General > Reset, and then selecting On or Auto.

Set the Clock Manually

If you always set your clocks five minutes fast, extend that to your TV. Using the TV remote, select Settings > General, and then select System Manager. Select Time, and then select Clock. Next, select Clock Mode > Manual. Now you can enter the current time. Select the Date and Time using the directional buttons on the remote.

Set the Sleep Timer

Do you like to fall asleep with the TV on? Make sure it turns off by setting a Sleep timer. You can set the timer for up to 180 minutes, after which the TV will turn off.

Using your TV's remote, navigate to Settings > General. Select System Manager, and then select Time. Finally, select Sleep Timer and set the desired amount of time.
