Just to make sure I'm being understood, I *want* the box to output everything at the content's native resolution/framerate & allow the TV to deal with it directly.
However, I got the impression from both avsforum.com and the menu options on my friend's U-verse DVR that there IS NO "output content at its natively-encoded resolution" option, and that you HAVE to pick 1080i60 or 720p60 as the output format for EVERYTHING. If the box won't volunarily leave the resolution+framerate alone, I'm going to have to program macros for every channel I care about to forcibly set the box to the right mode whenever I change the channel.
To my TV (1080p60 native DLP), EVERYTHING is an alien, non-native format. I trust its Faroudja-blessed video processor *way* more than I'll ever trust any mass-market STB whose main design objective was "be as cheap as possible".
