biker19, The Verizon tech gave me a HDMI, component, and offered an optical audio also. Very helpful.
More about my original connection issues, if you use the HDMI input,you cannot set the 4;3 ovrd to allow full screen 4:3, only with component. Talked to Verizon and their Moto experts. When you switch inputs, it will automatically turn the 4:3 ovrd to "Off". They are sending me a Moto user guide also. If you need one , just call them.
They told me they are also working w/Moto to get a STB w/two tuners so you can use 2 outputs for PIP. Currently you need 2 STB!! Also, need to be able to record 2 programs and watch a third, live, like you can w/D*.
