As you have no doubt found out, not everything on HD channels is true HD. Much of the programming is still upconverted 4:3 SD. Where can you find out which programmes are in High Definition? Here are a number of websites: Since links can change frequently, some may be out of date. If you wish me to update anything, or provide additional sites, please PM me.
