How can I pause and rewind live TV using the Spectrum TV app?

1080P output resolution selection missing even though cable box has the ability..
Why doesn't Spectrum include 1080P as an output resolution option in their cable box menu when your cable boxes already have the capability? It used to be a selection.
The reason I ask is I have an Onkyo surround sound receiver that can upscale to 4K but the input has to be 1080P (doesn't upscale with 1080i). This a common thing, I have never found a 1080i to 4K upscaler only 1080P to 4K.
To test that the cable box had the ability I turned the cable box off and selected menu then changed the 1080i output (with the output going through my receiver) and the TV input shows 1920X1080 then I changed the cable box to 1080P and observe the input resolution change to 3840X2160. Of course as soon as I turn on the cable box it switches back to 1080i.
I don't see how simply changing the software to include this option would cost anything and I have seen others that have the same frustration post on other forums. At a time when most people are getting rid of cable TV and the associated boxes I would think that this ability/feature would be an asset you would take advantage of.
