Based on JP2's response, it may be that it is the Comcast DVR 6412 that is causing the problem, and not a glitch with the 006 preventing it from accepting an interlaced signal without creating a "double picture" over input 6 or 7.
Do you have any other component that has a DVI output you can hook up to the 006 to input 6, to see if you still get the double picture?
I don't think you can blame the 006 for the double pic, I think that it simply has a momentary problem of not communicating with the 6412 over DVI/HDMI - whose to say who owns the "glitch".
All I know is that it is not a big deal for me because all I do is change the channel or power off the STB then power it back on and all clears up.
Unfortunately, no, I don't have any other components with DVI output- but my DVR provider plans to activate that port sometime this spring.
Just wanted to let you guys know again...that I have 2 set top boxes, an Adelphia Moxi which is their DVR unit (Charter cable uses the same)- and just a conventional High Def box that I am renting also from them... a Moto 6200. You may want to do the same with your local cable company - because I notice a definite increase (but slight to moderate when I say "definite") in the PQ of the HD box compared to the DVR box.
Both have the latest firmware available and were set up with a lead tech AND a supervisor.
I attribute the difference to the fact that the incoming cable signal goes thru less processing in the HD box than the DVR box because there is no recording potential in the former. So when I want to see the absolute BEST pic I use the HD box for live TV and when I HAVE to record I use the DVR box.
