Will older TV features work with digital cable?

Hi -- I have a house full of old big tube TVs that worked great with my old cable which came directly into the TV. Then we upgraded to cable boxes with DVR. Everything is fine -- the sleep times turns off the TV. However the on and off timer doesn't seem to work.

On one TV I want it to come on to wake me up to the news. It comes on but only to white noise and throws the TV out of the mode it needs to be in to pick up the digital signal. Not a big deal, I can put it back into the proper mode. But I need sound to wake me up not white snow which was really only picture and not sound.

The other TV we use to turn on and off when we're on vacation to make it seem like someone is still here and to give the cats some feeling of not being alone.

Is there going to be any way to get this feature to work with the new digital cable? Or do you know of a place I can go to ask this question other than here? Thank you.
