This is listed as being in HD. I am getting 5.1 audio, but no HD video...just 4:3 SD. Anyone else?


UPDATE:


I called our local affiliate and they have no clue. They said they are looking into it. They said that the movie may not be in HD. I doubt that since I am still getting the 5.1 audio.

The affiliate showed the original JP just before it, and it was SD also. FOX.com doesn't seem to denote whether its shows are hi-def or not. Titan has it as HD.....I shouldn't be too mad, as it is typical of FOX to disappoint.


I only have OTA access to their signal and being that it's very windy today, there's lot of blocking & tiling.



edit: we have the same affiliate....

Just an FYI, the original JP is in a syndicated movie package from Universal, and airing on various stations this month. It was sent out on analog composite C-Band satellite, so it is about as far from HD as possible.

The presence or lack of 5.1 audio doesn't tell you if the program is HD or SD. It works well with both and in this case it is SD upconverted to HD.
