TWC might be lying...or clueless. I have an SA3250HD box from TWC in
Columbus, OH. I can confirm the s-video out works for all the HD
channels. I watch the HD channels over the s-video plugged into my old
35" standard analog tube TV. Aside from the "grey" bars above and below
the 16:9 image, it looks pretty nice. In fact, flipping back and forth
between ESPN and ESPNHD, I think the HD channel down-sampled by the 3250
box looks decidedly better than the regular ESPN channel.
