It is all NBC, not your set.

Some local affiliates are multicasting the SD feed in addition to the 1080i HD feed, and it does not look good. HD is starved and the picture pixellates on movement.

I wouldn't automatically assume that if the picture is bad, it must be 720p. I receive both 720p and 1080i, using SIR-T351 and I can't tell the difference. They all look excellent when in true HD...

1. I liked the weather loop better.
