Re: Comcast HD Positioning

there are people like my fiancé and my family who have NO IDEA how to tune an hd channel. I have to continually show them how to.

So then they get to watch their tv in SD.

If they can't take the initiative to learn, it obviously doesn't matter to them. Comcast shouldn't be expending resources to hold their hand.

They put in 009 instead of 809 for the local news station. I have to put 809 in for them. It gets frustrating.

Make certain the cable box is set to send SD as 480i, and set the TV to keep 480i as 4:3 (most TV's seem to have separate ZOOM modes depending on the resolution). Then it will be more obvious.

or put SD channel in then press OK/select 3 times. if there is a mapped HD version it gets switched to, if not stay it stays on current channel.

At least in our system this does it.
