Create a pass-through mode on Motorola DVR

Instead of forcing a specific resolution, why not allow pass-through so that either 720p or 1080i will go through the Motorola DVR/STB. From what I hear, the S-A boxes do this already.

Re: Create a pass-through mode on Motorola DVR

As long as it is an "allowed" as an option that is OK.  My Mits will not accept a 720P signal and that would piss me off

Re: Create a pass-through mode on Motorola DVR

you mean your box doesn't allow you to set this from the menu? odd; I have a 6412-III prototype on my desk and both it and my stock 5k allow me to flipflop from the menu.  Or you're saying you'd like some form of auto-detect on the cable signal's native format?

Re: Create a pass-through mode on Motorola DVR

I think that was what he was saying: Give users the option to select or deselect pass through of the native format of the signal (720p on ESPN programs, 1080i on CBS for example) without user intervention.  Bobby would rather set it to 1080i no matter what the native signal is, because his TV won't accept 720p
