I was having that thought - I've not even had HD until recently - I
might as well set the box to 720p and like it.

I was kinda surprised when I saw the jittery playback and checked the
listing and saw the 1080 logo at the bottom right. I'm a little
confused as to which channels on my Time Warner Cable are at what HD
resolution. Since the HD-PVR encodes at what is sent from the box, and
there seems to be duplicate channels in my line ups. I need to spend
some time working all this out but it means I have to be sitting in
front of the TV and I do much of my research while I'm actually at
work. I'm such a slacker.
