    What resolution is my C61K client outputting now that the "Native" capability was taken away? Is DTV doing the scaling to 1080P for us or is it still 1080i? I have a Denon 602 Video Processor that shows the input and output resolution but recently started showing just dashes. The last time it showed a resolution input it was 1080i.

    The C61K-700 can output 720p, 1080i, 1080p and 2160p. HD channels are 1080i, PPV channels are 1880p and 4K channels are 2160p.

    Unless you are on a 1080P Channel or a 4K Channel.. As MysteryMan Stated it is 720p/1080i depending on what you have enabled

    I have the enabled resolutions set to 720p, 1080i, and 1080p. When tuned to a 720p channel, it is up-scaled to 1080i. When tuned to a 1080i channel, the signal is output as 1080i. That is precisely the issue with the elimination of Native mode. When tuned to a 720p channel, we would normally want it output as 720p, not up-scaled to 1080i. Why? Because we think that the up-scaler in the DTV box is not as good as the up-scaler in our premium displays.
