Actually, missing this feature alone
has tempted me to turn the Cisco:
- The upscaler in the Cisco is pretty poor compared to my TV. So I want the Cisco to just pass it on through.
- The Cisco does not report anywhere what the format for a channel actually is. This means I have to resort to Wikipedia's list of Ziggo channels to work out for a particular channel what the video format should be.
- The manual clearly lists it as an option, and hence I expected the feature to be present when I bought the device.
In particular, due to the last point I currently consider the device defective. If not resolved within the warranty period I will be returning the device as such.
I can understand that Ziggo may want to have a default setting that will work out-of-the-box for everyone
(including those with defective TVs which mis-report the formats they support). However it's very frustrating for the option to be removed for those that do
want to use it.
