Sample grid from Showtime HDTV schedule below - what does WIDESCREEN OAR HDTV mean versus WIDESCREEN OAR UPCONV? Impressions of video quality versus the networks? (I would thin that the networks are filmed with HDTV cameras while the movies were not). I get my HDTV set installed on Wednesday and considering adding Showtime. Thanks.

HDTV = A presentation made from a high-definition scan of the film.


UPCONV = The film is scaled to HD resolution from a DVD-quality (SD) scan (upconverted).


OAR = "Original Aspect Ratio", i.e., might be 2.35:1 letterboxed.
