What does the native setting do. Should I have it on or off? Thanks

Setting Native ON means the receiver will change it's resolution to match the signal sent by the broadcaster (ie - ESPN will send 720p, HD Theatre will send 1080i). This causes a delay when changing channels, but it allows the receiver to match the program's resolution. Some people don't like the delay, so they keep Native=OFF.

Native "on" is for when you want your TV to do the scaling, or use the aspect [format] features instead of the DVR's.
"Native" refers to the resolution of the program being broadcast.
If you can't tell any difference between how your TV does the job and the DVR, you might not want to use it, which is why you can select "on or off". There is no "one settings is right for all".
