Presumably the plan is for this work to be folded back into the main  
tree at some point in the future?

Is it not possible at present to display "standard def sources at  
1080p in realtime", or are you referring to extra-quality upscaling &/ 
or the constraints of your hardware?

I'm sorry to ask this but I'm a MythTV n00b - I've been reading this  
list for perhaps 6 weeks, but have not yet built my MythTV system. I  
have in fact just ordered a new 1080p TV, as my current gogglebox has  
only component / SCART inputs and I decided Myth configuration would  
be less pain using a TV with VGA / DVI input. I had pretty much  
expected to treat the new telly as a 1920 x 1080 monitor and that  
DVDs would "just play fine" when output to it.
