I just have my sound output from the normal 1/8" output jack going into
my stereo (1/8" on 1 end and red/white RCAs on the other). I have my
cable box set to output 720p. I recorded 1 channel yesterday and it
played back fine. That channel was an SD channel and this one is HD if
that matters. I tried this test on this HD channel because a few of the
shows I record are on it and its the main reason why I got the HD-PVR.
I didn't do anything with my playback profiles when I upgraded from
0.21. I think mine is set on Slim right now. Do I have to change any of
