Oh, there was one other thing, although I think you and others are
already aware of it. 

I can play 720p content on my 256M card through the frontend, but I
cannot play 1080i content through the frontend.  However the 1080i
content will play when I use the 'mythtv' player.  

I know some people are wondering about what will play with a 256M card
and what won't.
