The Component input can be 480i, 480p, 720p or 1080i
Now as for High Definition or Standard Definition rec format it make no diff to the HD-PVR it all depend on your video output from your cable or satellite set top box which can be in 16:9 or 4:3 aspect ratio and display modes/resolutions 480i, 480p, 720p or 1080i.
Composite and S/Video can only do 480i
Do bear in mind that when recoding in 4:3 AR and with 480i Res and movie your rec in widescreen you end upscaling when using a WideScreen TV Monitor. To get around that problem and look rigth it best setup your cable or satellite set top box as 16:9 AR and with 480i or if have the option go for 480p Res.
