Wondering if they need a new receiver ?
The older boxes are both analogue and digital, while the new boxes are 100% digital.
We have Cogeco cable and we have an old Motorola box and a recent one.
While both boxes work, some programs on some channels are decidedly better on the newer box; while most are the same.
The problem seems to happen on non HD channels. The older box seems to output an analog signal while the newer box outputs a digital signal.
We have a 42" Samsung LED TV and the picture quality is dramatically different from box to box on some low definition channels.
Sound (except for level) has not been an issue.
Edit: Opps - lost a bracket in the quote and couldn't find the error
