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.

yes, this is true. most fox affiliates are starting up their HD tranmissions to make sure everything works. They are just upconverting from 480P widescreen or 480i, however.
