I can now confirm, after having tried it over the course of 2 nights, that hooking the Comcast box to input 7 via DVI to HDMI works perfectly well - no double picture, so, it appears that their might be a glitch with the 006 and input 6 (that goes away if you simply change the channel on the Sony remote when you see the double picture - only slightly annoying).
Has anyone else, besides Penton, SRT-10, and me, who have tried using input 6 connected to an STB or HDTIVO (with a functioning HDMI output) via a DVI to HDMI cable, or via an HDMI to HDMI cable, noticed any problems with a "double picture" when first tuning to input 6??
Somewhat OT: By the way, I called Directv and told them my HDTIVO's HDMI output doesn't work. I pay $7.99 per month for a "buyer assurance plan" that covers this HDTIVO. Nevertheless, they told me they are fully aware of the HDMI problem with many HDTIVOs but they are NOT swapping them out, and they are not doing anything about this problem at this time. My guess is that they know they are going to have to swap out all the boxes as they switch to MPEG4 later this year. I'll probably contact their customer retention group and complain. They'll probably give me some sort of credit. I'm using the component outputs. High-def picture is fine, but hi-def in my opinion is much better with Comcast.
