Is it actual 480p/1080i or better ATSC-spec stuff or some analog shovel crap they want to call "HD"?

It's all 1080i. Everything is upconverted though, so there is only 1080i on the HD outputs. Forget 720p and 480p. But short of hanging an aerial to get OTA HDTV, there's no better solution here in NYC.

It does have S video out too which lets you view non-upconverted cable, but you can't view HD channels through that port.

Yeah, Porno-HD for the really lonely folks out there. :D

CBS, ABC, PBS, NBC, SHO and HBO are coming down as HD. FOX shortly. Not that NBC has ANY useful HD content short of Leno, and same goes with FOX, but the rest have pretty regular HD programming.

A friend and I were talking last night about finding a OTA HD box cheap (maybe a Tantus, as it appears its being discontinued), and seeing if its even gonna be possible to suck HD off OTA from where we live, which is in a fringy area according to the antenna maps.
