XH A1 SD mode..really bad?

Just shot some short clips in SD mode today and to me they are really bad
compared to HD. Shot in 60i and 30f, neither looked good. This is the first
time I have used SD. Am I just so used to the sharp pictures in HD mode
that I was expecting too much in SD? Is this something that everyone gets
with the XH A1? There were jaggies everywhere. I was shooting in A mode.
I am hoping that I don't have the camera set up properly. Thanks.
