The info that your LG displays only tells you the format that the STATION is broadcasting, and doesn't necessarily have a direct correlation to the source material. Since the FOX *network* requires all digital affiliates to have a 720p stream to their transmitter (if the station plans to carry the HD programming this fall), many FOX stations are switching over to that now -- your tuner will see this and display "720p" or "HD" or whatever it's been programmed to display, but you're just looking at material that has been UPCONVERTED to that format.

I should have thought of that. The picture is better than it used to be, but not what I would call HD. The fact that the local affiliate is sending a 720p stream to the transmitter is encouraging, however. Now, if they'd only put some decent programming on. Sports is fine, but I need more than that to make me happy with Fox programming.
