People should be warned to not expect any HD on TBS-HD except for the baseball games. The TBS-HD and new DirecTV HD channels threads in the programming forum indicate that no one has seen any HD on TBS-HD except for the Braves game yesterday. TBS-HD does the ugly stretch-o-vision for all SD, ala TNT-HD. With a sitcom heavy line-up, a lot of the shows on TBS are not available in HD anyway. Until TBS-HD gets HD versions of the more recent sitcoms and the equipment to air them, this will be one bandwidth wasting HD channel once the NLCS is over. This is why I have mixed feelings on wanting Verizon Fios to add it.
CNN-HD, on the other hand, does have new HD content every day for shows from their New York city studios and is producing some pre-recorded programs in HD. Once the cable system adds a channel, it usually stays there. But it would be useful if the bandwidth tight cable companies could provide TBS-HD for the next 2 weeks and then dump it in favor of CNN-HD until they have the bandwidth available for both. Not likely to happen however.
