To get the best PQ on any given channel, you will want to leave your STB set to 'native'.
When you do that though, and you switch between channels where on is broadcast in 1080i,
and the other is broadcast in 720p, you may get a slight delay of the on screen video.
Some people find that to be inconsequential to getting the best PQ,
and others find it to be intolerable, so it's up to you.
It's usually better to put settings at an explicit setting rather than AUTO.
If you always want to send a 1080p feed to your display, then you should probably set the player to 1080p.
That way you don't ever have to worry about the player getting confused and sending out something else.
However there really aren't any reports of AUTO not working correctly,
so you may be fine with AUTO, but setting to 1080p would definitely eliminate any doubt as to what the player is sending out.
