I have had this Sony since October but just got an HD receiver on 1/9/04. I was watching the "State of the Union" and CBS/NBC looked great and ABC looked comparably bad. I read in the HDTV section that it was probably because my TV was native 1080i (CBS/NBC) and ABC was broadcast in 720p. To confirm this, I went to the manual and found a shocking fact (if true). On page 42 it states that 720p is converted to 480p. Obviously, that makes my 720p HDTV channel no longer HD. I have e-mailed Sony and am waiting on a reply. If this is the case, it was misrepresented when I bought. Should I return this? 1080i looks fabulous and I have been happy with the product until now. I heard that when Fox starts HD, it too will be 720p. I hope that the manual is incorrect but was wondering if anyone had this same problem. If/when I hear from Sony I will update this.
