i think all sony tv's have this feature.
its called timer events. set the time, date (m-f ect) and channel. some have 2 timers, use one for weekdays and the other for weekends. also a light should lit up on the tv that will tell you if it set or not this way you know your power didn't go out and then you would have to set the clock and timer events again.
i used this function for years and it is why i have stayed with sony.
so go check out the sonystyle.com page, i suggest the 40xbr1 or the xbr2 and xbr3 if your seating distance is around 6ft
