My new cable box displays the channel instead of the time, and the clock near the TV is a non-lighted analog so I might get something like that.

Many cable boxes have a setting to change the display from time to channel.
Just check the setup menus.

I was thinking more like "Two bells and all is well!" but I like the bugle.

That's very true you can always buy a used VHS from a thirft store for cheap, and not only will it give you the time but it will also play VHS tapes in case you ever need to play one

Jay Leno was on some show recently talking about when he first bought his mom a VCR. He set it all up for her, but she said it never recorded. He went over another time and set it to record again. Same thing--it never recorded. Turns out she unplugged it every night to save electricity.
