That is usually a message from the cable box , it may not matter that much. there are at least 16 formats and we only use a few right now.
compatibility is an issue when dealing with different brands , designs and constantly advancing technology. set the Tv format (aspect) to either full or 16x9 then set the cable box to 1080i only, and stretch.
