Erm, that's not so.  720p is quite capable of 50 and 60 frames per
second, that's the exact reason 720p is used for sports channels.  The
HD-PVR's 720p captures are the same framerate as the source material,
in my case 60 frames per second (and 50 fps usually in 50Hz land).

Also, to reply to some misinformation earlier in the thread,
mythtranscode is *not* a GOP level editor, it's frame-accurate.
