Can you change the "FORMAT" from the remote?

I have a Sony 4:3 61" projection TV that is capable of HD. I just switched to Direct TV from Dish, but to my surprise there is a glitch. With Dish, the component video would send out 1080i, and the S video would send out 480i. So if I was watching a SD program, I would switch the input on the TV that was being used. Is there any way to switch the format that is being transmitted from the HD Tivo box? I hate how they turn off outputs based on the format button...

I dont want to get up whenever I watch a SD program and hit the format button...

Nevermind, I figured out how to adjust the settings of the box, and I'm all set now. Thanks...
