Is image fidelity loss normal for HDMI pass through?

I have connected my HD pay TV service to my xboxone and have noticed slight blurring and graininess.  Is this by design or is my system broken?

Hi Freebeema, this is definitely not by design.

What's the make and model of your set top box? Can you try setting it to 720p instead of 1080i? Non-interlaced content generally works better with Live TV on Xbox One.

Thanks Freebeema! I haven't heard of this brand of box yet, most of our Australia testing was on Foxtel. Let me take a note of this box.

Hi,

I'm in US.  Cable provider is Time Warner.  Cable box is Cisco 8742HDC.  I'm having the same issue.  Game and console looks great.  HD Cable channels look very degraded.
