    There was an announcement a few weeks back that all of the CBS football playoff games were going to be broadcast in HDTV. I turned on the Steelers-Browns game today and no HDTV! WTH???

    -I just re-read the original announcement and I guess they're NOT covering the wild card game in HDTV. Not important enough for them I guess. Bleh!

    So what happens for those of us who can only do 1080i (not 720p)? Will it be a crappy, boxed, line-doubled 480p?

    Daren,
    Your set top box or decoder will convert 720p to 1080i...You will not notice any difference..It will look great..All ABC HD programming is 720p..There are very few sets that receive both 1080i and 720p HD programming natively.
