There is a bug related to HDMI video resolution sync in the software on 8640HDC. I don't know if it effects other "C" models as well. It causes your resolution to default to 480i and stay stuck there whenever you power off the cable box or TV that you are connected to HDMI. It bug makes it basically useless to use HDMI, because you end up stuck at 480i, and have to do workarounds to unstick it.
There is a fix for this which is bundled in ODN software 3.2, which they are obviously pushing out. It's going to reset people's video settings as part of it, so they want people to jot down those settings.
It's an AWEFUL lot of work on BHN's behalf as a courtesy for this rollout. They've done far less in the past for changes that causes far more changes to boxes.
The update will not cause you to loose recordings or scheduled records, etc., unless of course, the update with your particular box goes sour for some reason.
