Edit-1: I went back about 2 hours after I took these picture and did the "653274147" Reset again just to be sure of the result. The offset was again at 0. And as others have indicated, the Guide Screen clock doesn't start to run until after the DHG is turned "Off" and back "On" again.
Edit-2: I just went back again and did a Guide reset from the "9012" menu. After this reset the offset was still at "0", however I did notice that the Guide Screen clock ran immediately afterwards.. it never noticeably went to "--:--", only to "12:00" and began updating. There was no need to power off/on to get the clock to start.
Mark... maybe there is a difference between what happens with the normal "Guide" reset and the "653" reset?

Maybe nothing, but...
All my resets were done during a 'live' signal to the HDD250. Could the clock thing act differently if no signal is present during a reset? Are we dealing with different updates/mods, perhaps not documented? Maybe we'll never know? Will the Cleveland Browns ever win a Super Bowl?
Strange stuff here. I decided to try this out for myself. I did a 9012 TVGOS reset. My front panel clock actually reset to 12:00, and was still there after the reset (I swear it didn't used to survive that reset). I checked the offset, and sure enough it was 0. I know in the past I have seen crazy numbers in the offset field after a reset. Then I unplugged the DHG, and when I plugged it back in, the front panel clock didn't come back. The offset was still 0, so I thought maybe when TVGOS set the GMT clock the front panel clock might come back, so I turned the DHG off, and left it alone for awhile. The clock didn't come back. I finally turned it back on to try some other things, but when I pressed the power button, the DHG spontaneously rebooted. When it came back up, the front panel clock was back. I went in and looked at the last reset and it was an 0x8013 reset (I don't know what that is). I decided to start all over with a 9012 reset (clock was still there), unplug/replug (clock gone). Then I did a few other resets (front panel reset, 653 reset 9012 reset, etc.), the clock has never come back.
CleCakYngMfd, I'm not sure what you mean by a live signal. Do you mean having the antenna connected to the DHG? That is how I always have done resets, although I played around the other day with doing the front panel reset without the antenna connected, but that is the first time I ever did that.
