Hello everyone. I'm new here and I have a problem. I currently have the Comcast DCH3416 HD DVR and it no longer displays in 1080i, only 480p. I had minor rain fall here in Baltimore (The cable goes out at the smallest rain drop) and I had to hook the cable directly in to the tv. So the next day I hooked it back in (through HDMI by the way) and it just displays through 480p. I unplugged and replugged the HDMI cable back in and it worked in 1080i. So I went to work and came back and my girlfriend did some cleaning. She knocked the cord out by mistake, but plugged it back in and it's been displaying at 480p since. I've tried using component to get 1080i, but it didn't work. I pressed the dumb format button on the cable box and that didn't work either. So naturally I though the darn tv was broken but my Xbox 360 works fine. So anyone have any ideas?

"I see" said the blind man. Thanks for the info. I'll try it out soon as the Ravens game goes to half.
