Cleveland WKYC is NOT broadcasting their news in HD. They have HD cameras and an all digital setup in their new building. It just shows you how much better a 1080i signal can look when upconverted from a digital source than when done from a crummy analog source. Don't be fooled by the aspect ratio. WKYC's digital signal is being broadcast with a 14:9 or 15:9 aspect ratio. You can only see the side bars if you have a display with no overscan. Most sets with as little as 3-5% overscan will not show the edge bars.
Unfortunately the last time I checked, a couple of days ago, WKYC wasn't broadcasting the national HD feed of Jay Leno, but upconverting from their analog channel. As has been mentioned elsewhere, their engineer Rex Rickly has said they just haven't had time to get everything working at their new location and the HD broadcasts are at the bottom of their priorities.
STOP DVI/HDCP from becoming DIVX
