FYI: HDTVGALAXY shows ABC programming as 720p, but our local affiliate is broadcasting in 1080i. The reason being (hope I get this right) is that most HDTV owners in our area do not have the equipment to process 720p.

Well that's completely wrong. They may broadcast in 1080i for some reason, but it's not the one stated. I don't think there is a single STB out there that can't receive 720p and convert it to 1080i.
It is true that most HDTV owners cannot view 720p "natively"....but that's a completely different situation. The national feed is 720p.....so if they are broadcasting in 1080i they are converting it prior to broadcast.
