Also don't forget that even if you don't have a HD TV source to record
HD material, there are plenty of other sources of HD material, eg
backups of your legitimatly obtained bluray movies, etc.

believe me there is a difference between watching a well ripped bluray
at 720p or 1080p and watching a DVD or SD broadcast of the same, even
with nice upscaling of the latter!
