I have a couple of minor issues with my new 5040. The live picture on a 32" CRT TV is "soft" looking---like its slightly out of focus and is especially noticeable when talking heads are displayed.

I'm using s-video connections from a DirectTV box. My TV is very sharp when directly connected to the DirectTV box even when using RCA video cables. Can anyone comment on this---can it be improved or is it the ReplayTV encoder? if its the encoder will a software algorithm update improve matters or is it the hardware part of the encoder.

The second issue is that I don't get the listings for pay-for-view in the guide--all it says is "pay-for-view" in all the channel slots!! I was hoping to cancel my Satellite Direct (DTV guide) subscription as its wrong most of the time anyway.
