i think the limitation is the av7111; the chip simply
cannot handle 20mbit datastream. since the tuner data outputs
are not directly connected to the saa video bridge (like the
budget patch does) there wont be a chance recording hdtv (mpeg2)
with a ff card.

vdr and the av7111 dont know that the signal is a hdtv stream.
therfore they want to process it, since vdr was designed to do
wait for the "new" streamingboxes (em8550 based) or new "dxr6"
card (em8620 based), then it would be possible to "live-view"
hdtv within vdr with a budget card - or design a hdtv ff card
based on the trimedia pnx1500 chip :)
