Sasktel TV hook up

Last Christmas we bought my wife's Dad an new LCD HDTV to replace his ancient TV.We included an HDMI cable. When we visited him a few weeks ago ,Sasktel had come by and updated his box and connected the TV.I noticed the picture was okay, but not great.So I did a little checking,and discovered the TV was connected to the box via a component cable,not an HDMI cable!

He wasn't sure what happened to the HDMI cable we gave him .He's 76 years old,and understandably not too familiar with cables.I ran out and picked another HDMI cable (expensive at the local store),and the picture was way better.

I would like to know where the original HDMI cable went...

KDLW4100,BDP-S550,Wii,PS3,Shaw DCT 3416 HDPVR with 1TB exHDD,ATV2,Mission M2V 5.1 ,Klipsch RW-10D sub,HTR4063)

odd, we pretty always include HDMI cables with an install

What's his number, I'd be curious to see who did the install (you can pm me this if you like)

I've encountered at least a couple SaskTel installs where it was composite video, not even component or HDMI. It's a cheap fix, but still don't get why they would do that.

it's not typical, or the expected install

only times I've seen it done is when customer has a tube tv, or something that just doesn't have enough HDMI/component inputs
