I had a Motorola DCT3416 from Comcast, which was connected via HDMI to the Sony HTCT100 (soundbar & subwoofer), then a HDMI cable runs from that to the TV (Samsung PN50A550). Whenever I turn the TV on or off, the settings on the cable box reset themselves to default (for example, the 4:3 override, etc). When the Sony receiver is turned off, this does not happen (because signals between the TV and the DVR are not reaching each other). When the DVR is connected directly to the TV via HDMI, this does not happen.
I called Comcast and they of course had no idea what to do so they shipped me a brand new Motorola DCH3416, but the exact same problem happens.
Again, the connection is DVR -> Receiver -> TV (all via HDMI).
I saw a similar thread about this from last year, but someone just recommended a firmware update. My box currently has the latest firmware.
Does anyone have any idea why this is happening??
Thanks in advance!
