(I'm just assuming that TWC is doing the inserting). The only thing that I can't figure out is why it only happens on TNT. There are local commercials/promos on other HD channels without the resolution changes.
Next commercials just after 8:20 a.m. EST...
Hertz green collection = No issues.
AT&T more bars in more places = No issues.
Silverstar Ultra headlights = No issues.
Breezes Resorts = No issues.
CiCi's Pizza = No issues.
Miller Chill = No issues.
The Laughing Cow cheese = No issues.
Splenda = No issues.
Astrive student loans = No issues.
Screen Actor's Guild Awards promo = No issues.
Back to the movie with a scene showing fingerprints and a guy dipping a tea bag into a cup over and over.
Now... after reading your post, nickdawg's suggestion that local commercials may be screwing it up is something to look into. But I can tell you that through three commercial breaks, I haven't had any issues at all, and I also notice that I've had no local commercials shown at all. So I think we've pegged it to your local TNT HD feed and the insertion of local commercials.
That said, since TBS and TNT are the same company, have you ever had issues with TBS Stretchovision HD? Just a random thought that came to mind.
