anyways... ive also gone through my 3rd box... mainly cause of Hdd problems...

ever run into this problem?

my provider is time warner...
OMG this same exact thing is happening to me too! I thought maybe it was my tv but I guess it is the cable box. I've had the box since the summer and it just started happening a month ago. Everytime i turn the tv on, it switches to 480i and really shrinks the image, the only way to fix it to to switch to an HD channels which causes the cable box to switch to 1080i or 720p. Doing that is really annoying though becase I have to do it every single day.
