Yeh I know my TV is HD ready, I can put my X-Box 360 on it and it looks
sweet. I was also able to get the Pixel clock etc. from my Xorg.0.log, I'll
try using a online converter (found one a while back).

Yeah, now you mention it, the card does have analogue inputs. Do you know if
*any* DVB-T receiver can cope with HD content, or only ones which have been
designed to. I might have to get a DVB-S receiver then, but they are very 
scarce. Anyway, haven't managed to generate a working modeline, once I do
though, playback should look better.


In theory, any dvb-t tuner should be able to receive HD.  The tuner doesn't
care what format the stream is in - it just feeds it to the OS to deal with.
All the references to MPEG2 compression and other rubbish on dvb card specs
are usually talking about the bundled software - which is usually windows

If you get your reception from Crystal Palace you should be able to pick up
4 HD test channels (BBC, ITV, CH4 and Five). Playing the channels is another
issue - look at the dev list if you're interested (I have it just about
working but playback is too slow). 

I will however be picking up my HD box on Saturday morning - managed to get
on the BBC trial :)

Googling your tv model suggests it's HD ready -try converting these into
modelines (from my Xorg.0.log):-
