Display channel or time on DVR Box (Spectrum 201-T)

I just got a Spectrum 201-T Standard DVR Plus cable box.  There is no channel or time display on the front face of the box.  I don't see an option in any of the menu settings to turn on a channel or time display.  Is there a way to have the time or channel display on the this box?  If not, which Spectrum DVR box still has that option?

No,

 

The Cisco/Techicolor and Humax Spectrum cable boxes have no clock on the panel.  They are cloud-based, and the time comes of of the cloud on Sectrum's network to the on screen guide.  Any older Cisco, Arris, or Samsung box will still have a front panel clock.  I don't recommend the Samsung boxes, they are known to be buggy.

Totally agree to stay away from the Samsung boxes if at all possible.
