I can't explain this.... I recently moved to the mountains of Colorado, abandoning Comcast for Time Warner. When I upgraded the cable TV to included high-def programming, I surprisingly found out that the local cable company (Gunnison, Co - Time Warner) does not supply their customers with the HD feeds for the Denver locals (ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX). What's up with that, anyway? Legalities with a satellite provider I was told. Bah! Humbug! I left my old Series 2 connected to my LG Plasma (video composite) along with my Premiere, connected via HDMI. Guess what? My Series 2 provides better picture quality on the Plasma when I watch the Denver locals in SD. How can that be?
