I think one of the things that currently will prevent PocketDish from supporting HD is the hard drive space required. It can be anywhere from 6-10 to 1 space requirements for HD over SD... so in order to keep the PocketDish small and affordable, there will likely be a lag in technology over more expensive/less portable equipment.
If only the HDD was the only issue.

Pocket Dish just doesn't have the horsepower to deal with 1080 or 720p souce material. It's simply not within the capability of the internal scaler. Must be converted before going to the HDD (like real-time capture from SD source).

Also, don't get too excited about the 604. It's max source resolution is 720x480.

From the Owners Manual:
http://www.archos.com/products/video/archos_604/download.html?country=us&lang=en
MPEG-4 ASP (IPB) and stereo sound up to 720x480 @ 30 f/s (NTSC)
Spec sheet says "Up to DVD Resolution".
