On the other hand, if you know you have a device that can't handle 
every possible option, then you may choose to limit your options. Eg, 
if you can't playback HD, then you may choose to only record SD.
In the UK, for FTA there are only a couple of HD channels, and AFAIK 
they don't show anything not also broadcast on SD - so that wouldn't 
be a big deal for many people.

As I've already mentioned, it would be interesting to see the results 
when someone who knows the technicalities actually looks at the 
device and what's available to the programmer (APIs etc) so we know 
what it actually can and can't do - rather than what it's assumed it 
can't do "because ARM can't handle that".
