    For the last few days I have been having a problem with the aspect ratio changing from 16:9 to 4:3. To correct it I have to go into settings, the ratio is still selected at 16:9 but to correct it have to first select 4:3 and then re-select 16:9. Has anyone else had this problem on their HR54?

    Do you have the 480 resolution checked, If yes uncheck that box and just have the 720p and 1080i selected.
    Go into your Display settings and see under Video, what setting is for Screen Format.

    I looked at the display settings and found that only the 480 was checked. This is strange because I have for years only had the Hi def resolutions checked. Obviously some so-called upgrade must have made these changes for me, I know I didn't change them. About all I can do is watch to see if this solves the problem.
    I appreciate you pointing out the obvious solution, I mistakenly though that when I made settings DirecTv would not override my settings. Thanks.
