I have my comcast cable box hooked up to my Onkyo S7100 home theater and whenever I turn on the receiver, the settings I have set in the cable box's menu (1080i, 4:3 stretch) are reset to 720p and 4:3 standard. I have to change them back every time I turn the receiver on. Is there any way to fix this?

Bypass the receiver and run direct to the TV. If problem persists... get the cable box replaced.

All of the cable boxes here(Moto 6412,6416) do it...when connected via HDMI.
Each "handshake" when you change inputs,power on,etc. resets the user menu options to default.
I solved the problem by using component,and digital coax out for sound.
