Lets not forget, the only real difference (other than the width) is progressive vs interlaced.

SD = 480i standard definition received via a digital tuner
NTSC = analog/traditional
There is absolutely no reason that 480p should be "far superior" to SD/480i, but it is definitely far superior to NTSC.

To clarify my original question:
Can I expect superior quality from FOX EDTV when DirecTV adds it later this year as compared to my current FOX local on DirecTV.
I assumed the FOX local I now have through DirecTV was in standard defenition.

Yup, Ken, figured Rec. 601 was the original source of some ATSC H/DTV. But assume there must be some type of conversion to put 601 into the required ATSC format for broadcast. Perhaps someone who works in this area could outline what takes place? -- John
