    If it's free, enjoy it.. I've got it, but I only get 5 channels in HD.. NBC, ABC, PBS, HBO, and Showtime.. PBS is the only one that has an impressive feed, the rest is mediocre. I haven't seen Jay Leno in HD yet, but everything else on NBC has been disappointing. ABC is only 720p, and HBO and Showtime basically look the same as my old digital picture did.

    Sujeet, are you watching actual HDTV programs or just upconverts?

    It's hard to say.. I watched a rebroadcast of The Sopranos, which is supposed to be an actual HDTV program, and it looked like a widescreen version of it with no resolution difference. Whereas the PBS feed is NIGHT AND DAY difference from regular TV. With the holidays, there hasn't been much regular programming, so hopefully I can get some more exposure to it in the coming weeks.
