I just got DirectTV last weekend. I also got the HD Tivo from them. I love the unit however, when I switch to 1080i output format the video gets corrupted. I know that my TV and my A/V Receiver can handle that kind of signal because I've used them for that before. another thing, when I am on 480p watching HD programming it looks like HD not 480p but the unit says the format is 480p So my 2 questions are.

1) Is something wrong with my Tivo unit?
2) Is the HD Tivo supposed to switch formats on its own, or are you supposed to set it to your TV's maximum?

in case you are wondering its hooked up using component video and optical audio.

Thanks for any help in advance.
