Auria TV Losing Zoom Setting Upon Power Up
After my new DirecTV install, my Auria TV Model EQ 4288 is losing its screen ratio (zoom) setup. I have it in WIDE, and upon power off and back on again, it reverts to NORMAL, which is a standard 4:3 aspect ratio. Another problem that occurred since this install is also upon power on. When it comes up (the DirecTV client box is connected to HDMI1), it displays NO SIGNAL. When I check, it is still set for HDMI1. I have to power the DirecTV box off and on again. On a parallel issue, DirecTV replaced Comcast Xfinity. When Comcast upgraded me to Xfinity a couple of years ago, the TV volume control resets to zero upon power on, which it is still doing now.
Could this possibly have anything to do with older HDMI technology? I believe this set is early 200x, if not late 199x. We got it as a refurb around 2003. As if this isn't enough problems, the volume and on/off functions will not pair up with the DirecTV remote. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
