Centralization of graphical awesomeness

The problem is that playing movies is only one of the FR uses (one I
have never done by the way - I suspect its actually a minor use for most
people)  - I love the FR's high res screen that can make legible quite
small text and details.

So, I would be quite unhappy to have QVGA as the default when I dont use
anything that would benefit.  That being said, it would be a nice option
if it can be made both selectable and non-buggy - I do have a mythbox
and FR/myth integration would be a wow factor thing, though not very
useful otherwise.
