This leads to more questions that might allow you to use an Auto Clock setting:
1. Did you have a channel # entered in the Manual box?
2. If so or even if not, did you use "The 11:57 Procedure"
to find and CONFIRM a good time signal, as described in the help file?
If you haven't used that procedure before, that might help find the single channel you need to be able to use Auto Clock?

Yes that is where I set it to manual. BUT I took that "Manual" to mean: I would manually set the clock. I was not aware of the feature where you could manually set a channel for the time reference.
I am glad you asked that question though - it may be a clue as to why channel 1 keeps coming up. I went back to check that setting before I responded to your post. When you set it to manual and click enter, the box to enter the channel no comes up - with a 1 in it. I have a feeling I did not read [or understand] that box and hit enter again in haste. Thus setting channel 1 as my time reference.
I did not use the 11:57 procedure - I was not aware of it. But as soon as things settle down re the channel 1 problem, I will pursue it.
Thanks again. It sounds like setting the channel for my time reference will save me a lot of work manually setting clocks and keep me from getting frustrated with the process.
Edit: I checked the clock setting on 2160 #2, where I am not having the channel No 1 problem. When I click enter, the box for entering the channel comes up with a 4 in the box. I did not enter that # originally. I have no idea if channel 4 [NBC] even has a time reference. But everything is working well on this unit. The time was about 30 sec fast on this unit.
