Has anyone here in the St. John's area noticed and / or have an explanation for CBC (CBNT-DT) having switched from "glorious" 720p HD to only pillarbox and windowboxed (4x3) in what appears to me to be 480 resolution broadcasts?

I noticed the switch a couple nights ago when nothing was widescreen (full) and the picture sure did not look HD. Did CBC just tease us for a while with HD or they having a problem? I assume they know the difference between the HD and SD feeds!

The news this evening (just over) was 4x3 and seemed to be SD in resolution.
