I've got both my STB's outputting 720p content only. I still have the
same problem. Randomly some programs record, some don't. The same
program that failed will at some point record correctly.
Firewire is equally unreliable. So frustrating to not being able to
record any more. Maybe Astound cable wasn't such a good idea. DirecTV
never gave me these problems.
