We can not judge TNT until we see true HD programming like Nascar and NBA. Golf looked like Stretched SD to me

The golf WAS stretched 540i (PAL) BBC-TV coverage. Definitely not HD.

Yeah, it looked weird; I thought it was PAL. It wasn't as bad a PAL conversion as the NFL game in London last year. Neon green grass! :rolleyes:

You'll have to forgive me. I'll readily admit to understanding neithor MPEG4 nor brain surgery. But,. is there any reason why (my wife) and I think the picture is better on 75 ? (We're just now watching an old L&O) .... Commence laughter.

What was wrong with TNT during the Closer tonight? There were a bunch of static/glitches at the start of the show. Then the stream broke up completely for about 10 seconds. It appears to be an MPEG 4 issue, my HD-Tivo recorded the MPEG 2 stream without glitches.
