Make cable box automatically switch to HD station

I've become very fustrated with having to click "Watch in HD" on the channels whenever I switch to them. I can't find the option anywhere in the guide. As such, I've asked Comcast online techs about it and they think "Auto-Tune" is the solution... per documentation and my testing it is not.

 

So, has anyone been able to figure this out? It seems like a super simple solution.

 

Thanks in advance!

When you tune to a regular channel that has an HD equivilant, you will get that message.  You should be able to create a list of your favorite channels that are only HD.  There is no other automatic option.

I just by chance found using the X1 box a setting to tune to HD channels.  It is under Settings, Preferences - General Overview "Auto-tune to HD channels: On"

In addition to the posts above, another option to be aware of in our non-X1 boxes is the HDTV Menu.

Using the silver Comcast remote control, press the Menu button once, then arrow over the right to the HD icon on the Quick Menu.  Press OK-Select. 

Some good HD channel list options there, no Favorites list required.
