My google fu isn't as strong as it was about a month ago when I was able to find the button combo to enter the offline menu of my comcast digital cable box (HD) to switch to 1080i.

I can't find it now, I've been on hold for about 15 minutes...hoping an arfcommer can come through and tell me what I need to press to bring that menu up...

Which box? Make and Model will help the search.

It's a motorola - no hdmi...that's all I could see on it.

It should say a model number, DCH#### or DCT#### or something like that.

Which one of these does it look like?

Found it...in case anyone else ever has this problem...


If this is a Motorola HD box, turn the power to the box off and then hit menu on your remote. I can set my TV to stretch the picture from one source but not for another. Be sure when you switch to the input your box displays on, the settings are how you want them. If all else fails, give us a call.

To access the menu on the box itself to switch from 720 to 1080 hit the following buttons on the remote.

<cable> <power> <menu>, in order and right after each other. The box will turn off and you will get a diagnostics like screen with the ability to swap to the desired resolution.
