Rogers PVR won't keep 1080i setting on my UN46D6000

(Not sure this is a Rogers PVR issue or Samsung TV issue)

I went through the setup wizard on the Rogers PVR (SA8300HD) and only saved the 1080i setting. Then powered everything up, but when the TV turns on, the PVR always drops to the 720p setting. If I go through the settings menu on the PVR again, it's still set for 1080i only, if I click the 1080i setting again, the TV switches to 1080i as it should and displays things correctly.

I'm using Belkin hdmi cables, TV is set for 16:9, but I always need to go in and change the PVR to 1080i (even though it still says 1080i).

Thoughts out there? Sorry if I posted this in the wrong place.

Thx for the response folks.

I checked the avsforum that Bob provided the link too.. and yup, the composite cable solution worked like a charm. Basically had to disconnect HDMI, connect composite cables, go through the PVR config to set 1080i, change the video settings to output 'passthrough', connect back to HDMI, and all is good.

Someone posted the fact that HDMI can be 'slow', so when the PVR is booting, it defaults back to the settings for composite video output... which was defaulted to 480i. Once that's changed, we're in business.

I love this forum... this little problem was sooo annoying... lots of ppl have had this problem as well.... Thanks again.
