Did you request an HD box? If so it'll either have DVI or HDMI. I'd ask them specifically to bring a box that can support HDMI.

Yeah ok thanks, I've told them I want a hdmi hookup, but you know how the sales or phone customer service people are, you get the feeling they really don't know very much.

Be careful with your installer though, the first box I had brought to my house they brought component cables (which was fine since my Sony only has a DVI slot) but when I went and picked up my other box at the local office they gave me a 8ft HDMI.

If they dont bring HDMI or want to charge you for it, just get them from monoprice.com <--hope its ok to post this, they are the best price IMO. They also send very stout cables even though the quality of HDMI cable doesnt matter until something like 50 meters.

Well he had just the componet and dvi hookup, so I'm hooked up through componet until I go to the comcast shop here in north Mpls. Exchange it, and get a Hdmi one, it's a dvr with Hdmi hookup.

None of the regular HD boxes support HDMI. Only the HD-DVR's have HDMI output.
