    I watched Alien Resurrection last night on ABC. It was supposedly broadcast in HDTV, which I get via an off-air antenna, but it was not widescreen and the picture didn't look much better than my local digital channel off of my directv dish. As far as I know if it is not widesrceen it is not HDTV. I know ABC broadcast in 720p and my Toshiba DST-3000 upconverts that to 1080i but i thought that it would at least look better than an upconverted 480i signal which my Directv local channel is.

    I did some research and discovered that the ABC D.C. affiliate, WJLA, does not have the equipment to broadcast in HDTV. I would have to get in the the Baltimore ABC station. Oh, well.[​IMG]
