I just thought of a very good reason why I would never use my game console as a PVR. I have a nice shiny 47" Bravia that I have spent quite a bit of time setting up. The TV, internet, DVD and streaming modes have all been set up to best effect so even SD content looks brilliant. On the other hand the console modes have been set-up for maximum performance with all processing turned off. This still looks great for high def games but will look crap for SD and low HD quality video. Unless the X1(80) can producing the same processing magic for SD and low HD video then there is no way on earth I would let the stupid thing play my video content.
