ok, so get this, i'm having a major problem now. I have this connection: Tivo Series3 -> (HDMI) -> Yamaha RX1700 -> (HDMI) -> Sceptre 42 1080p TV when I turn off my TV, then back on, the TivoS3 gets reset to 480p. (yeah WTF)... Every time I power on the TV (leaving the stereo on), I have to enter my Tivo settings and set it back to "1080i fixed" (same problem happens with native or 1080i hybrid). I can actually see the transition to 480p happen, turning the TV on, the tivo is then in 1080i for a brief 5 seconds, frozen with no remote control input, then flickers and goes to 480p. It's as if the Tivo is somehow losing sync and falling back to "something safe". BTW: I just upgraded firmware on the Sceptre42, it was NOT doing this before that happened. The firmware apparently upgraded the Sceptre 42" from HDMI 1.1 to HDMI 1.3 (unfortunately, I cannot downgrade, as you have to send the TV to the factory for upgrade).... Is there a way to hack the Tivo to stay put in 1080i???
