Is it possible to hook up a component cable from the 6416 DVR to a non-HDTV that has

a component input on Video Input 1?  My DVD works fine with a component cable to the TV

through my A/V unit.  If I connect from the 6416 with a component cable I get diagonal

lines as picture output.  Sound is fine using optical cable from DVR to A/V.

When you use the DVR with composite or S-Video it uses the default SD resolution. But when you use the component output it is probably a resolution your TV does not support. Go into the DVR settings and set the output for a resolution your TV supports. You may need to use composite cable to do this so you can see the screen.

Thanks for your reply.  Got me on the right track.  DVR was set to 480p.  Changed

to 480i and  now I have very good picture for a 480 scan TV.  All is well for now.
