Yep, a few.

It should, but it would probably be easier to simply add software
scaling to the renders that don't support hardware scaling.

More help should be added to the video profile editor. I added some
last week for the decoder selection, but I try to spend my time on
fixing bugs before spending time on adding documentation. It doesn't
have to be "F1" help, there is a help area at the bottom of the setup
screen which is going unused for this setting.
