I was watching American Idol last night and here's what I see what happened. KTTV was always on the splicer HD feed, but somehow, after the national commercials went through, the local commercials didn't appear, instead a FOX spinning box screen apperared where the local commercials were suppose to feed through. KTTV realized what happened and switched to the SD feed IMMEDIATELY (as to not to anger the local advertisers). The locals went through ok and the show was back on...in SD. KTTV went back to HD within 5 minutes of the show, but another commercial break came; and this time, they slightly interrupted the national commercial and went to SD to make sure the local commercials went through. This happend through every commercial break, switching to SD to let the local commercial go through, but forgetting to switch back. Shows you how much they care for their local advertisers.
