I have Charter Communications and a Motorola box..don't have the model number of the box here at work...and I have it set to 1080i for all broadcasts\\channels and when I hit the guide button on my remote to bring up the channel guide it pops up immediately with no delay. I have the 82738. Now when I change from cable to Blu-ray there is a delay, but that can be expected. Also, if I change from 1080i say to 720p or something else there is a delay, but here again that is a major change on the HDMI source that the TV needs to reset itself to...this is expected. I think what I am doing different than some of the other people here is I am using one HDMI out from my receiver to the TV and no matter what is coming in on HDMI into the receiver the TV knows no difference. I use only one HDMI IN
on the TV and have it calibrated that way so you don't have to calibrate for different sources or inputs. I think this is the best way to do it...in my opinion.
Ah I just picked up on something you have the 82738, the set without the iris, that might account for some of the difference in screen brightness between what your set measures and mine.
I also use a single HDMI port, no video goes to the reciever. I have DVDO Duo Video Processor it has a separate HDMI audio out port. Everything the TV sees is on the same HDMI input and is always 1080P before it gets to the TV. I have both a Tivo HD and Windows Media Center PC and they are both relatively fast at channel changes, especially the Tivo.
