I'll cross that bridge when I get there.

The whole HDTV thing is of no interest to me until there is
a DVB card that can actually replay HDTV in hardware. Until then
I'm not going to spend any time on this. And by looking at what
great lengths broadcasters are going to just to make sure nobody
sees (let a lone records) their HDTV programmes, it's even questionable
if this will ever become interesting for VDR.
