Your remote may vary slightly from the one pictured here, but the
basic functions should remain the same. Some features require your
remote to be programmed for operation and may not be available in
all areas.
Choose Your DVR Settings
To achieve optimal picture quality, your DVR set-top box must
have the appropriate settings for your TV. In most cases, a
Comcast technician will optimize these settings for you. To
access and change your TV settings, follow these steps:
STEP 1: ACCESS THE USER SETTINGS MENU
To access the User Settings Menu, power On your TV and
power Off the DVR. Press the Menu button on the front of
your DVR to call up the on-screen menu. You may use either
the DVR front panel or the remote to navigate the menu.
Press  on your remote to select the setting you wish to
change. Press   to select an option for that setting. To exit
the setting and move to another setting, use the  buttons.
STEP 2: SET PREFERENCES FOR WIDE-SCREEN TV
The first user setting, referred to as “TV Type,” tells the DVR
what type of TV you have and how you prefer to watch
wide-screen programming. For standard-screen TVs, choose
either 4:3 Pan Scan or 4:3 Letterbox. For wide-screen TVs,
choose 16:9.
STEP 3: SET PICTURE RESOLUTION FROM DVR TO TV
The next setting is referred to as YPbPr OUTPUT and
indicates the picture resolution output from the DVR to your
TV. The choices are 480i, 480p, 720p, and 1080i. For most
standard TVs, the appropriate setting is 480i. Choose 480p
for enhanced-definition TVs. For HDTVs, choose either 720p
or 1080i. Refer to your TV owner’s manual and choose the
setting that indicates the highest input picture resolution your
television will support.
STEP 4: SET 4:3 OVERRIDE
This setting provides the ability to specify how 4:3 standarddefinition programs are displayed on your TV. The choices
are OFF, 480i, 480p, or stretch. For most standard TVs, this
should be set to OFF. For HDTVs, the appropriate setting is
either 480i, 480p or stretch. If you have a wide-screen TV
and select the stretch setting, 4:3 programs will automatically
be stretched to a wide-screen 16:9 aspect ratio and display
video in the format you specified in Step 3. Consult your
HDTV owner’s manual to determine the appropriate setting.
STEP 5: SAVE YOUR SETTINGS
Press the Power button on your DVR to exit the menu and
save your settings. If you purchase an HDTV in the future and
already have an HD set-top box, call Comcast to have your
HD channels authorized. You then may need to modify these
settings.
Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT HAPPENS IF MY DVR LOSES POWER?

recordings saved prior to the power loss will be preserved. If
