Resolution bug. How does the search application decide?

    Is there a way to report this issue besides the useless level one phone support?

    I'd really like to use HDMI and have 16:9 screen selected but have 4:3 properly flagged. I don't like juggling remotes. I've removed the batteries from my TV remote because the auto aspect ratio adjustment works so well with all my other devices.

    Strength in numbers?
    Get people riled up on forums and build up a following?

    The problem with this bug is that it affects only people using HDMI , have TVs that pay attention to the aspect flag on 480, and dislike 4:3 stretched to 16:9.
    It can also be difficult to describe in words or even pictures.

    There are TVs that are capable of displaying the flag being shown.
    Take pictures or video to demonstrate the issue? Maybe that could help artificially inflate the impact of the bug on the TiVo user base?

    I've more or less decided that this bug is unimportant enough that it will become part of the long list of annoying bugs that get introduced but never fixed.
    (I like my TiVo, but I am too often disappointed with lack of resolution for long standing minor issues.)

    We have a 19" 720p TV set to Hybrid 720p. After a day of not using it if we press the Tivo button it switches to 480p Fixed. Very annoying.
