In HD, possibly not. But composite out 420i shouldn't be a problem.
What kills it for me is that monthly fee, just to get decent guide data. That, along with the price for what you'd get without it. If I could live with just PSIP data, I'd get the Pal DVR, or if I wanted the better guide, a TiVo w/lifetime instead.
As far as having Vudu, I don't put my priorities very high for getting that with a DVR, because I don't expect it to be a "cost-effective alternative" for very long. And remember, you can't always avoid commercials with streaming, either. Even if I wanted it now, I very likely may not in a year's time. I'd be more inclined to go with a separate streaming box, which can get a lot of other stuff, too, for that.
