It would not surprise me if it's your local ABC affiliate doing it.

Last year, the Indy 500 ran overtime, but that didn't stop the local ABC affiliate from switching from HD to SD! :eek: I have absolutely no idea why a Major Market ABC Affiliate (Is New York "major" enough?) even HAS SD periods on their primary DTV feed, but there it was, for some minutes, until someone up the line whacked the engineer...

I agree that it sounds like a local station issue.
