So is HDTV 720p60?  Is it really that big a jump from 720p24?  Does it
seem odd to anyone else that they are pushing these things as an
accessory to an HDTV but its really only powerful enough to do SD?
And that they are going with H.264 which is very cpu intensive but
gave this thing a low powered processor?  I don't get it.
