Default Super 14 Semi's in HD?

I see according to the EPG that only the Bulls vs. Crusaders is being broadcasted in HD and not the Stormers vs. Waratahs game. Why isn't the 2nd semi final also available in HD? Is it because of only 1 broadcasting van or some other reason?

Still has yet to deposit the money for the SD PVR he took off Sandtonman under false pretenses.

The Game might be available later during the day on HD, but not as a Live Feed, as the usual.

I'm being optimistic here, I know

Can the game be shown 4:3 on mnet and 16:9 on SS1 ?

I suspect that all SS content shown on mnet is just a mirror of a SS channel, but can 2 different aspect ratios be shown on the 2 channels at the same time ?

Merv is quite right about the OB vans being used for football and rugby. SuperSport tried to loan another HD van from the SABC, without success.

I myself dont know how, but i guess it shows you, the technological advancement of the Aussies, like how the WC 2010 here in SA wil be screening it on HD for the first time, while UK, US, perhaps the Asians will be watching it in 3D LED
