    Not to belabor the obvious, but are you sure you are watching NBC HD channel? If it does not have the HD logo you may be tuned to the SD NBC channel. We get Leno in HD without problems in Los Angeles but there are two different NBC channels (actually three if you count the national feed, also in SD).

    Yes, i am positive it was the HD channel. and its a perfectly logical question.

    The...
    The problem was probably with the local NBC affiliate. Many local stations still do
    a manual cut-over to and from the network's HD feed, for example coming out of
    a commercial break back to the network. If the EOD forgets to do the cut-over, or
    is on a potty break, viewers still see the SD feed. This still happens more often
    than it should.

    The advent of HD and the requisite technical upgrades at the affiliates has made
    the station engineer's job more challenging, to say the least.
