Do you have any OptikTv+Internet plans more then 15mbps in your area?

Yes. So you think this is a speed issue?

Try contacting TELUS after rebooting PVR and modem. Doubt it.

The boxes don't always start in HD mode. Rebooting modem / box won't typically sort this out. When you watch the HD channels, is the blue HD light coming on? Did the installer change the settings on the box to 720p/1080i? I have mine on 1080i and it works fine.

Blue light is on.
The STB sets to 720P. (Change to 1080i make no different.)

What kind of cable is connecting it to the TV? Coax, Composite, Component or HDMI?

I know it's likely not the cable but these boxes have a history with HDMI issues. Do you have a spare cable to test with?

Here is my setup:

1. SONY TV --HDMI Cable -- STB PVR --Cat5E--Actiontec
1. LG TV --HDMI Cable -- STB Player--Cat5E--Actiontec

All HDMI cables are v1.4. Change HDMI cable has no effect.

That's a good setup. If both boxes have same issue, call in and have them check the connection / line / errors. Personally I'd recommend leaving the boxes set to 1080i as it's worked fine for me with no issues so far.
