Many Cox cable boxes, especially newer ones, have various aspect ratio settings. The 480p setting is commonly used on standard TV monitors. The 1080p setting is used for HDTV monitors that have a widescreen shape. Changing the aspect ratio setting on the cable box will allow the TV to receive the signal in a different aspect ratio, allowing for a more detailed high-definition picture.
