BBC HD seems to be encoded as H.264 at 1440x1080, at least on DVB-T from 
the Crystal Palace transmitter. I've tried recording and playing it, and 
it won't decode it in realtime, even on my Core2 Duo E6600. That's from 
mythfrontend or just playing the file in mplayer or xine. My guess is 
I've either messed up my config, my binaries aren't compiled right 
(packman for OpenSuse 10.2 x86_64) or libavcodec is just too 
inefficient. Have you had any luck with the HD stuff? 

Thanks also to Wim for the advice, good to hear it reinforced!
