I surfed over to local channel NBC last night and saw Jay Leno in HD 16x9...looked good. I surfed back a little later and it was in 4x3. Did I change format somehow? I had forgotten to try the aspect ratio button on my TV remote, but was wondering if there was anything on the Voom remote that adjusts aspect ratio that I may have changed accidentally.

What most likely happened is either your local station "forgot" to switch back to the NBC HD feed after a break or there was problem with the HD feed and they switched to the SD upconvert.

Interesting. Yes, I noticed very good PQ in the 4x3 format. Makes sense.

Welcome to the wild, whacky world of OTA digital. The stations frequently forget to "throw the switch" to go back to HD after a commercial break. Until the stations get automated equipment in place, this is going to happen.
