Is there a definiton of HD?

If so, send it to TNT.

They think taking anything and morphing it to a 16:9 aspect ratio means that it is HD.

Resolution does not seem to play a part in their definition.

What irks me is that the EPG says this is HD. I would like to see the HD designation on ESPNHD and TNTHD only when they are truly HD, not stretch-o-vision or side-bar-o-vision.

last night a Seattle Sonics game was on ESPNHD and I was excited until I tuned it in and it had the HD side bars. Needless to say, I didn't even watch it.

Upconverted not HD but not stretched anymore either so it does not look as bad as it used too but it is still not HD no matter what. :D :D :D

#1. I can find a lawyer to say whatever I want to pay him to say or argue no matter how ridiculous it is.
#2. Who cares?
