One trick to get HDTV playback on a slower machine is to transcode to a 
mid-range resolution or to the native resolution of your tv/projector.

For recording from a cable or sat box it would be better to use the HD 
outputs rather than NTSC. With hardware encoding to MPEG4 I could see it 
being useful.
