    Always had 1080p. Now it is greyed out for some reason. Any ideas? Have the latest version of firmware. Called up Directv and they are suppose to push a new firmware upgrade with in the next 48-72hrs. No telling how long it has been lost. I just noticed it going through my settings.... My tv is certainly 1080p 24fps capable as I order plenty of movies from Directv and when hitting info on my tv. It showed it displaying @1080p with "Real Cinema" on for 24fps. I have a newer LG 55" led tv.

    Now it is back. Wth? I also have the box set to "native". and always have. Wondering if it is some kind of hdmi handshake issue that happens randomly? :confused:

    I turned it off and it still had the problem. Tech support told me to try that. I am also still having major audio drop outs with my local channels. Wondering if my dish is out of alignment or signals need to be tweaked. Its been 3 years since having it checked out....

    P.S. I have to leave native on as I do not like a stretched out 4:3 picture to 16:9 when viewing sd content.

    You can have Naive to OFF and have the 4:3 picture by choosing Pillar Box for the Format.

    Maybe reseating the HDMI cable on both ends would help.

    All my HRs get set to Native On and I've never had a bit of trouble with that.
