Default Time Warner - Los Angeles. Best cable box non-DVR?

I have the Scientific Atlanta Explorer 4250HDC it is so laggy. Is there anything better that I should try and get? I know my parents have a DVR box that doesn't have lag but I don't need the DVR function. I'm using HDMI too. Any suggestions for a non-laggy box?

Try connecting the box to your TV with component cables for video and either coax/optical digital or analog (red, white cables) for audio. You will get the same high quality HD picture without any lag...

I have used component cables, but it doesn't help because the problem is with the processing/programming of the box itself. Component cables/hdmi/rcas won't help make the box work faster.

Then go into the box settings and choose a fixed resolution rather than auto...

Same question circa 2012. This box is such crap.
