    if you switch to the SD channel 202 does it still have the same 20 second delay?

    on mine when i tune between the HD and SD 202 channels the timing is relatively the same..

    haven't tried that yet but did you take into account that the HR20 takes about 6-10 seconds to change channels??

    i currently have SD duplicated hidden but i will try that later tonight and see what the result is.

    Some local stations are doing it for ratings survival. With less people watching local news it is one way to keep local viewers watching local news. Others are doing because someone else in the market did it first so they must do it also in order to survive.

    As for the CNN Atlanta Newsroom it is REALLY hard to covert a tv studio that is live almost 24x7. So unless they want to build an entirely new studio/control room they have to take it one thing at a time. In New York they did build a new studio awhile ago that was ready for HD so all they had to was upgrade a couple of things and then there were able to send there wonderful HD signal down fiber optic cable to Atlanta where it is than uplinked to satellite and cable providers.

    Lou Dobbs is back and in HD. I think he must be sick, he looks terrible in HD. And I mean no disrespect if he is sick.

    Larry King's definitely HD somewhere along the chain. I saw that the opening graphics were HD for like 3 seconds before switching to SD.
