    I'm hoping that they're not going to keep the reruns at 480p or upconvert them. I guess I'll see tomorrow on Arrested Development. Can't wait for the season to begin!

    the reruns of shows that were shot in HD will most likely be shown in HD

    The Seattle game looked good, although they had quite a few audio problems the first half.

    The Atlanta game had a lot of audio problems too, but more during the halftime show than the game. I had to switch over to SD during halftime it got so bad. But I thought the CBS game looked better than Fox's. Fox had a lot of dot crawl. The field looked like it was alive sometimes.

    How would I go about finding out when a local network affiliate will start broadcasting in HD? Especially this season with so many more sporting events and shows in HD it's driving me nuts that locally NONE of the affiliates have started broadcasting in HD yet.. When it comes to football I've just got ESPN HD..watched all the HD football highlights on ESPN earlier..had me drooling for all those Fox and CBS games in HD.

    It was not broadcast in 5.1 on my Comcast Digital (Indianapolis area). I switched to OTA-HD for Fox and there it was, all it's 5.1 glory. The picture looked pretty good I thought. We got to see the Dallas-Viks game, and it didn't show any problems with video or audio.

    Whew, I thought the audio problems during the Falcons game was just poor reception in my area, so I'm glad to find out the audio dropouts was a broadcasting issue.

    The sound level on the Bears HD broadcast in Chicago was horrible. The volume of the commentators vs the sound level of everything else was way too low.

    Patrick, was the Falcons game in HD in Atlanta? It was blacked out here on Sunday Ticket and not in HD on the local Fox affiliate "HD" channel. The DirecTV guide didn't show the game as being HD, but for some reason the blackout went away for a few minutes right before halftime and it appeared to be HD.

    The Gaints vs. Eagles game had audio problems also. Nothing like watching my team lose in HD, probably the only was to make loss look better than it actually is. [​IMG]

    Yup, the Falcons-49ers game was in HDTV here in Atlanta. There was a short period of time (4th quarter, I think) where the feed went wonky and the SD feed was shown, but someone fixed that glitch and the game was shown in HD for the rest of the time.

    Could some of these issues have to do with the way some of the affiliates were re-transmitting the master broadcast signal?

    Does Fox broadcast at 720p/60 like ABC/ESPN or is it 720p/30? That may explain some things, but not everything.

    Also, in order to get the best 720p picture your TV display must be able to show it natively with no conversion or with quality upconversion in pure progressive scan mode (the best is a 720p or 1080p digital projector being fed a 720p signal via DVI or HDMI). Some scalers that convert it to 1080i soften the picture and/or add other artifacts.

    And thanks to the 6 FOX games in HD, NFL Primetime on ESPNHD was also great, having lots of hightlights in HD.
