Problem getting Hi-def to work on my bigscreen

I just had Comcast out yesterday to hook up my new Hi-Def box to my big screen. My big screen is a Sony 63" rear projection. We hooked it up with the component cables on a seperate input and it showeda picture like the projection cans were out of adjustment. It also made the picture look like a "Bow-Tie". We went through two different boxes and it was the same. The regular cable works fine and the picture is perfect. My DVD is hooked up with component cables also,and it works perfectly. Why is the Hi-Def cable not working right? Any ideas???? Thanks...Eric:banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

Have you tried your DVD in the same component input as you tried the HD cable box? Do you see this on all the channels when using the HD box, HD and SD channels? What's the model number of your TV?
