    Probably a stupid question with a simple answer, however, I lost my H20 user manual during a move and haven't found it yet, so here goes. Question is with the resolution LCD lights on the front of the H20(480p, 480i,720,1080) box. WHen I change channels from an HD channel to a SD channel and vice versa shouldn't the green lcd lights move to the corresponding resolution of that channel? I can manually change the setting by pushing the resolution button on the box itself, I would think however, that the light would "automatically" change to the resolution of the channel that it's currently set on? Mine doesn't. Can you change the res setting with the remote? Is this even an issue? thanks for any help.

    The receiver is upconverting/downconverting the video to the setting corresponding to the green LCDs. The "format" button on the remote should also change the resolution. If you go into setup and set the resolution to "native", it will switch as you change from HD to SD channels (this action is pretty slow, however.)

    Directv has the manual on their site if by chance you still need a copy of it.
