I'd support resolution independency, as I run VDR xineliboutput at the
native resolution of my LCD TV, i.e. 1366x768.

Unfortunately I'm not too confident that there will be any new DVB cards
with built-in decoders with HDTV output interface with OSD.
It seems to me like in the future HDTV picture would be output via

with hardware HDTV decoding support could appear, though.
