I just recently went to Rogers store and picked up 2 new cable boxes so I could get HD for a new 52" LCD TV. I have connected the box via HDMI to the TV and the quality of the picture is awful, only SD. I have set the settings to 1080i and I am not zoomed in. Is there something Rogers has to do so that i can receive HD quality viewing or is there any other issues anyone can think of? Very frustrating. I have the new tv and my older one both connected to the new boxes and I am getting only SD quality on both so I know it's the TV.
Any help would be appreciated.
Hi thank you both for the quick response. Yes it is the new Cisco cable boxes I have. I had HD about 8 months ago. We downgraded to basic cable to save some money and just yesterday wanted to go back to HD. The HD I had previously was perfect and stunningly clear. This time however, on both TV's, the picture is awful even on the 500 series channels. Does Rogers have to do anything outside myhome to receive an HD signal? I am so confused as to why this is happening. When I last had HD I received HD quality on both 500 and lower end channels. Now both are no better than when we just had SD.
Did you have the older HD boxes bofore, and the newer ones now? Or did you have the newer before as well?
The newer boxes, and newer guide, ARE more sensitive to signal issues than the older ones.. but those normaly equate to choppy video, pixelization, audio issues, etc. Shouldnt be a QUALITY thing.
I am running 2 HD cisco boxes and one HD cisco PVR, and all of them are outputing HD correctly.. so unless the boxes are potentialy buggered?
What plan are you on now?
I'm going to launch my Rogers box off the balcony...
Someone tell me why if I turn from a SD channel to an HD channel, the HD channel flickers on and off, or just completely lose signal for minutes at a time.
