No, HDTV broadcasting hasn't really started yet over here (you can't
buy DVB-S2 equipment yet), and everything is likely to be encrypted
anyway. But some stations do send anamorphously encoded 16:9 material
over PAL, which softdevice nicely transfers in 720p resolution over
DVI. I'm transmitting 720p anyway all the time (setting is 16:9).
