One more thing they fixed in "Sins of the father" are the USS Intrepid logs which were SD on the sampler disk:

They are HD now, like the rest of the episode.
Yes, thank you! I forgot about that shot and that it was earlier in the episode. Somehow I remembered it as the one directly following the 13 seconds, but that was regarding Kahlest and clearly HD on the sampler.

It's interesting how CBS neglects to include SD upconverted material that periodically appears on displays in the show ("Heart of Glory," "The Schizoid Man," "The Best of Both Worlds, Part II") in their upconverted footage calculations, probably because they're comped inside of true HD footage.

The Next Level sampler should have said approx. 17 seconds was upconverted, not 13. It'll be interesting to see how "The Mind's Eye" ends up with all those VISOR shots. They're a bit more involved than the same shots in "Heart of Glory" though, with lots of readouts and symbols, so hopefully they go back to the oneg and recreate the effect.
