After my recent move, I was “upgraded” to the new wireless mini set-top boxes. After installation, I noticed they had hooked up my 57” tv using RCA cables. When I went to fix the problem, I realized the new boxes don’t have composite cable outputs. Since my TV doesn’t have an HDMI input, the only way to watch TV with the new box is to use the RCA cables and watch in non-hi-def resolution. Does anyone know a work around for this? I’ve called Verizon numerous times (and spent forever on hold), but haven’t gotten a solution yet.

Was your old tv originally hooked up to the previous box by component cables (RGB) + red and white for audio? If so you need to get an HDMI to component video converter box, about $30 to make it work in HD. You are actually using the composite outs of the box, the new ones have no provision for component (RGB) +LR audio.
