And yes, MSG in SD on Fios is perfectly acceptable to me as well.

One last point. The main reason Fios will always look better than CV or most other cable co's is their ability to not have compress and uncompress channels to get them all to fit. Verizon receives and sends out whatever feed they are receiving so if something doesn't look good on Fios it's probably not their fault. This may already not be the case though. Even Verizon is reaching it's limits, or has, and may have to start piggy backing channels.
As great as the picture may be upscaled, it still will not be widescreen, even though it is stretched to fit your widescreen tv.
