I exchanged my SA 8000HD DVR for an 8300HD (T-W, Houston) and am having a problem getting the proper screen for HD. I am using the component outputs to the 1080i component inputs on my Samsung HLM TV. I have gone through the format process using both "quick 1080i only" and advanced, setting up 480i,720p, and 1080i. Screen format is set to "pass thru", and I have told the box I have a 16:9 TV set. I see all HD programs as a 4:3 screen, with the left and right sides of the picture cut off. Resolution is HD quality, I just am not getting the full screen. Also Dolby digital is selected under sound, but I don't get a DD feed. I've ordered the HDMI/DVI cable, but I don't know if this will cure my problem. The SA 8000 box worked perfectly (for a non-TIVO box).
