Advanced settings with a Comcast DVR?
I called Comcast on about this exact same problem, and their official reply is that it can't be changed.
I'm not buying it that lame answer though, since I WAS able to change the default startup channel when I used this same cable box with my Adelphia cable service. Comcast must have removed that menu option with a firmware update.
