Is it true like on ESPN HD that when the grey bars are on CBS HD it means the program IS NOT in HD? Is there a way to tell?

The grey bars on WCBS HD indicate that the programming is coming from the New York affiliate, rather than from the national HD feed. During a standard def show, you'll generally see the grey bars all the time. On an HD program, you'll see the grey bars during local commercials and promos (e.g. for the local news).
