Re: [STB] PACE RNG110 HD Only Box (with no clock) I found the Pace RNG110 to have less HDMI problems than the Motorola boxes, before switching to a Motorola box try another RNG110.
I think he has the rng110. He might be on a cisco system though, where he can't get the 110 as the 110 is only on motorola systems.
I am in the Philadelphia Market if that makes any difference.
I tried changing the picture detection settings on my Sharp Aquos TV but none of them helped with the initial startup of my RNG110 box.
I did notice when I changed my TV picture detection setting from AUTO to RGB it corrects the picture resolution on the screen from VGA to 1080.
I guess I will just have to get to used to powering my box on and off 2 times.
This is the box I have:
RNG 110 with RF
CSG Model: Phase 2 - PCRNG110
Phase 3 - PCR110CR
Dimensions 10.5" wide x 7" deep x 1.5" tall
Digital Audio Optical (S/PDIF)
NOTE: There are three versions of this converter: Two with RF output (Phase 2 & Phase 3) and one without RF
Low-cost, Comcast specified, next generation set top box
High Definition decode and output.
Multi-stream CableCARD for Motorola networks
A25.2-2, A28.x and Tru2way capable (Is currently being rolled out with Tru2way disabled.)
Docsis 2.0 (with 3.0 bonding)/ DSG and MPEG-4/AVC capable
Max memory configuration is 256MB RAM
This next generation set-top box must be used with the new Comcast Platinum Remote (dark silver) with white Comcast logo. Existing remote controls are not compatible with this box. Customers will be issued this new remote when they receive this new set-top box.
This is my second RNG110 HD box, so it's just the way this box talks to my tv I suppose.

You can leave the PACE RNG110 STB on all the time.
I like to turn everything off to save any ounce of electricity.
There is still a electricity drain when powered off though.
I know there is no perfect solution. Everything has issues, haha.
Thanks Russ for the good suggestion!
I'll just power on twice or leave the STB on as suggested.
The RNG110 is not energy star compliant so it uses almost the same energy on or off. It is probably a lot more energy efficient than the older Motorola boxes (DCT and DCH series).
