South Florida: CBS Dolphins Feed not in HD

More than half the Dolphins games this season on CBS-HD (233) have had a non-HD feed.  Has anyone else seen this?  A friend of mine in Boca (we're in Ft. Lauderdale) says his have all been in HD.

How local are issues like this?  The game is 4:3 with grey bars so it's coming from Comcast that way ... but from where?  Is this a head-end thing?  Would Boca and Ft. Lauderdale be on separate systems using different versions of the CBS fed?

Re: South Florida: CBS Dolphins Feed not in HD

Your friend either doesn't know what HD is or is pulling your chain. CBS broadcasts 3 HD games each week. Chiefs v Dolphins was not one of them this week.  This week's HD games were:

11/12/2006     NFL     San Diego Chargers vs. Cincinnati Bengals     1:00 PM         CBS (1080i)
11/12/2006     NFL     Buffalo Bills vs. Indianapolis Colts     1:00 PM         CBS (1080i)
11/12/2006     NFL     N.Y. Jets vs. New England Patriots     1:00 PM         CBS (1080i)

This is per CBS.com and also verified on HD Sports Guide

Thanks, Frank.  I'll check the guide next time -- didn't even think of that.
