I know fox said they were moving to 720p but I thought it wasn't going to be around august. Is any one in the philly area picking up Fox 29 in 720p or is my Tv crazy? Fox used to always be listed as 480p. Today I noticed it is listing it as 720p. Anyone else seeing this ?

Philly's WTFX-DT FOX 29 is a Fox O&O station, so you should be getting 720p. Here in LA, KTTV-DT FOX 11, another Fox O&O, is already sending 720p. Last night's American Idol 16:9 upconvert looked pretty good here.

Not yet. They were waiting for the sweeps to end, according to Foxeng on another thread. After June 1st, they should start the upgrade process.

My station has changed to 720p and we are upconverting everything to 720p since we haven't received the HD gear, so just because a station is 720p, doesn't mean it has their HD gear yet. Installs are not supposed to restart for the O & O's until Monday, May 31st.

Our local Fox station WRSP started out at the very beginning transmitting

1080i. It looked amazingly good: you could tell it was not HD, but it

was better than the best DVD. Now they have switched to 720p,

and of course it looks just as good (I have a 720p TV set).
