Vista Media Center now supports HDTV (previous XP versions didn't) -
I've never tried to make a DVD or VCD off of HDTV though.  I imagine
you could probably at least convert the video to another format and
burn it if not.  My biggest frustration however is that there is no
way to get the HDTV from your cable or satellite box to your PC in
HDTV form.  It all has to be over-the-air for that to happen.  I think
this is more of a limitation of the Cable and Satellite companies
though, that I imagine will be fixed in the near or distant future (if
IPTV doesn't beat them to it).
