    What is the resolution for most "normal" (i.e. sitcoms, dramas, etc.) shows and for sports shows? Is there any listing that specifies what different shows are filmed in?

    I believe everyone but ABCESPN is using 1080i and they are using 720p under the rationale that 720p is a better resolution for fast moving objects such as sports.

    When Fox (finally) goes to HD this fall, they're also supposed to be 720p. FYI, they're both 16:9, so it's 1920x1080 and 1280x720.
