How can I optimize my Standard or High Definition video?:


HDTV provides an extremely high resolution picture with diigitally enhanced sound, all presented in widescreen format.  You will need to program your cable box to the capabailities of your HDTV using the onscreen menu.  This allows the cable box to automatically optimize both standard and high-defintiion video based on your HDTV and personal preferences.
