I simply have an aerial antenna going straight into my tv (Samsung TC-P54V10). I have not changed any settings on the tv, and the other HD channels are still showing up as 1080i as always. Only Fox (channel 12.2 in my area) has fallen back to 480i. My tv is still reporting signal strength as 85% on that channel, which is about where it always sits. The other HD channels are also reporting about 85%, as always.
It's possible you are correct and it used to be 720p, but I would've sworn all of my local OTA HD channels were 1080i. We watch very little broadcast tv at my house, so it's been a while since I've turned on Fox. I'll keep an eye on it in the future when it (hopefully) switches back to HD. I'll take either resolution, regardless. Any HD is better than 480i! Is it possible my local transmitting station is dropping it down to 480i for some reason? I would even begin to know who to call to ask about what's going on.
