Would be interested if you see any difference when changing modes. When I do it the size of the guide changes and I can notice it.


When you say changing modes, are you referring to the HDTV set-up menu in the 811? If so, I tried this awhile ago & I noticed I saw no difference between 1080i & 720P, neither in the PQ nor did the EPG look any different. (I thought this was a little unusual). However when I changed over to 480p in the 811's set-up menu, the EPG became huge. I cannot say I saw any noticeable difference in PQ.

That is what I mean.. That would make me think something is happending in the 811 in terms of chaning video modes. Suprised you don't see a difference with 720p and 1080i. I do whenever I have done that excercise.

Hmmmmm....Or maybe that's just the point...Could this possibly be indicating a problem? The fact that I don't see any difference between 1080i & 720p doesn't seem right. Is it possible the 811, for whatever reason, is no longer actually showing 1080i? Could it be hung in 720p? Again, just thinking out loud as I go..

Ron:

If it's ok, I'd like to send you a PM regarding this so as not to tie the board up...
