    On my daughter's TV, I've noticed, about once every other month or so, the resolution of the DVR (HR22) keeps reverting back to 480P and I have to re-select 1080i and 1080p and de-select 480P. There is no way she would have any idea at all to change the resolution, so the DVR is doing it on its own.

    Has anyone else run across this issue? Any known causes? Native is set to "off".

    That has been known to happen after a box gets a software update.

    If she presses the Exit button and holds it for a couple of seconds it will switch the DVR to SD, 480p, mode.
    Holding it down again will switch it back to HD mode. You will not have to go into resolutions and reset them.
    Each time a message will come to the screen telling you that it is doing whichever one.
    Try it and see if it works.
