Question Cablebox sharpness setting?

In cablebox menu there is a selection for sharpness of 1-5.I believe 3 is a neutral setting(neither on or off)and I think it defaults at 3. I'm wondering if this setting effects standard definition and high definition? Or is it just one of them? Ive seen some knowledgable people use 3.

On the HD DVR I have, the "Sharpness" is on the "advanced A/V settings" menu, which I assume means it will affect only the signal coming out the A/V port. Since my TV is connected via HDMI and not A/V, it wouldn't affect my TV.

Not knowing what cable box you have or how your TV is connected, it is hard to know if the setting would affect what you see on your TV.

My very humble setup:
Man Cave:Vizio E500i-A1 "Smart TV" (50-in 1080p 120Hz LED/LCD, has Netflix app.), Blu-ray players (Sony BDP-S3100, old LG BD390), Roku (the original model: N1000), PC (Windows 7), Comcast Internet (25Mbps/5Mbps).
Bedroom:LG 32LV3400-UA TV (32-in 768p 60Hz LED/LCD), HD DVR (Motorola RNG200N), Xfinity Comcast cable (Digital Starter Package), DVD/VHS player.
