Are you saying that ch. 39 is all in HD, like 455 I think it is for CableOne HD service?
I can get 13.1 with my antenna (even the cheap R/S one indoor), and only the main shows like Lost, Grey's Anatomy and some other shows/movies in HD. WLOX news and the commercials are never in HD
I found that to be true with every channel I can receive with the exception PBSHD 20.2, which is ALWAYS in HD, never SD. Ch. 3.1, 4.1, 5.1, 20.1, 48.1 all broadcast their popular shows in HD, but all commercials and news casts are in SD.
I thought that was the way it just is. Is that right to see only the main shows in HD, and all else in SD using OTA equipment? My buddy has CableOne HD package and gets WLOX news casts/commercials/not-so-main-popular shows in HD (so he says, I should probably confirm) but I was wondering if that HD upscale/transmission is happening at the station, or in between the cable locale's or in the CableOne HD receiver.
