Others have said there is more to the end user experience in PQ than just how it is shot or what the resolution is.
For me, CBS football games via San Diego KFMB-HD (where HD means "horribly defective" PQ) SUCK
Horrible breakup and macroblocking on motion shots.
I'd rather watch Fox or ABC - MUCH better viewing experience.
From what others have explained, the culprits are the local affiliates that *#$& the PQ up.
Lucky for you that CBS has good PQ - I'm jealous.
