Wow... bittorrent is popular now. You can snag video files of just about any television show nowadays, and most in HDTV. (files via IRC, though)

As is, I watch Tivo-compressed NTSC feeds of Angel and Smallville in letterbox, but then I have my HDTV remove the black bars on top and bottom and stretch the middle back out to the real size. Talk about quality loss.

Any recommendations on HDTV scan converters / video cards? (somehow need to pipe 720p video from a computer into my HDTV....)

Since I don't have an HDTV Tivo [yet?], maybe this is a better alternative. (snag raw HDTV feeds and watch on TV....)

Is it illegal to download something that's coming in over the air anyway? (the HDTV signal is out there... I just have no hardware to save it to timeshift it, which is legal.)
