Thank you both for your responses.  I posted the question to their
forums, http://forums.thetvdb.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=7704.  The
response is that they do require the image to be either 1080 or 720
and do not allow lower res images to be upscaled.  Since I only
receive it in standard def, I'll have to go the route of creating the
file locally on my MythTV system.  I would gladly upload to them if I
could do so within their requirements.
