    I've always wanted to ask this, but what pi is itunes movie/tv show downloads in comparison to the 480pi (or is it 480? I forget) on regular television?

    because downloading SD on itunes yields a better picture than regular tv.

    SD in this context is SuperDrive.

    Tymbo, iTunes downloads are almost 480p (but the horizontal resolution is 640 instead of 720). A regular DVD is usually 480p in North America, 576p in Europe, or 576i in Australasia.
