ok...i finally sucked it up and ordered digital io with hd box. it's the sa4200. even has dvi. although i probably won't use it...since i have my htpc connected to dvi for my sony hdtv.


anyways...the cable guy set my box to 480i. he said that was ideal setting. oh my! which i found odd since he seemed to be somewhat knowledgeable.


so i changed it to 720p and then to 1080i. couldn't decide what looked better. is there a preferred setting? or does it depend on tv model?


my other question. for non-hd content, is there any way to set the left/right letterbox to a black color? i don't care for the gray color.


please advise. thanks.

It depends on the native resolution of your TV and the quality of the scaler in the TV vs the scaler in the STB.


Honestly, if you cannot see the difference then it is really a moot issue...


Cheers!

DAve.
