Per Dan Carpenter at WSYX.

"We are a little behing and will be going on late. Early Sept is our anticipated air date.

Both stations will begin broadcasting 480 lines progressive scan. While some consider this standard resolution, with progressive scanning and 480x704 pixels, the resolution of 480p is 50% better than DVD. We will look into higher resolutions with ABC in the future, FOX has standardized on 480p."

I wish these people would stop quoting numbers as if they were true. If Dan is an engineer, he should know better. "Upconverting" his network feed to 480p doesn't add ANY resolution. ABC already provides 720p to its stations, while Fox appears locked in to widescreen 480i.

Doesn't WBNS air CBS in HDTV? Any comparison with real HD should be obvious.

Yes, WBNS has been broadcasting for awhile. It was neat during the recent basketball playoffs, they used the other sub channels to broadcast different games.

CBS/WBNS is clearly leading the way in Columbus.

Jackasses. Luckily for me, I watch about a night of ABC a week, in total, and half of that is sitcoms. Guess I'll just keep hoping ABC sucks.

"Some consider this..."? Who considers it anything but standard?
