    Evening all
    Just picked up an HD20 from the classifieds and whilst it is able to show Sky with no issues, it seems to only be able to show a picture from my ATV if I select 720p output. quite frustrating as i am upgrading from a 720p HD700X.

    Does anyone have any pointers?
    thanks

    Well, some more googling leads me to think that the problem may be that my (low cost and slim) 10m HDMI cable isn't up to the job.
    Will order some new ones and see if they will work.
    Any suggestions for a decent 10m cable which will not cost the earth?

    £10 cable from Amazon fixed it!

    Good to see you found a solution. I'm changing the projector I have and will be adding an HDMI cable. I was going to get a cheap one but I'll be paying a bit more now I've seen your post.
