Any reason why Fox isn't broadcasting in widescreen right now? So irritating. Football kickoff Sunday and the games aren't in HD or widescreen. New season, same (local) Fox.

The CW is still broadcasting its HD lineup in 4:3 and it doesn't seem to be a true HD feed. Anyone know what's up? Or, is Pappas being a tightwad again?

So is anyone troubled by the recent article over at Hometheatermag that basically says our Sony's failed the HD test, meaning that the sets don't do "true" high def at 1080i?
