I noticed that the HD and SD channels have different crawls at the bottom.

Probably due to the aspect ratio of the screen. The Crawl is likely the same info, just phased differently because of the screen sizes :).

You might be correct, but at the moment, one is doing sports and the other one is doing news.

I too noticed that the studio shots do not appear to be HD. The shot looks like a 4:3 shot just with the HD banners on either side. The crawl is full screen. Why are the studio shots not full screen?

So what programs on CNN are actually going to be in HD?? It was my understanding that they've been ready for HD. But yet, I wake up this morning and see the HD bars on the left and right side during the American Morning program. I mean, I really don't like CNN because I am a conservative :D , but I'll watch it for the HD. But then again, I'm not sure if I really want to see Larry King that close up.

By the way, I've been scrolling through to see what zap2it.com has listed for CNN HD. Nothing. Anyone know??

Did you watch between 6-9EDT? Their NY studios are HD, everywhere it's SD...

Well, Jenny McCarthy is on Larry King tonight. Hopefully that'll be in full HD.

what you were seeing was a field broadcast.

..as far as "everywhere else it's SD" .. many of their other studios / bureaus are HD ready camera-wise and what not when the transmission infrastructure is.. so it's only a matter of time.
