Channel Changing Delay

We used to hit the channel up or down button (or the channel number for that matter) and the delay before the channel changed was minimal--maybe 2 seconds. Now it takes 6-7 seconds, way too long. Anyone know if this is a setting that got goofed up?

Re: Channel Changing Delay

How do you have the box connected to the TV?  HDMI may take longer.

Re: Channel Changing Delay

it's a recent change that happened all of a sudden--no change in connections or anything. we connect directly from our tv to the cable box and do not have HD.
