If your TV is only SD (720x576 i think), you can record at that resoluton, then later blow it up, yes.

No, the quality would be worse than HD. But, if you record with high bitrate (7-8) it would be acceptable quality. But not HD.

You can find a picture that's 720x576, and then make it 1280x720 with photoshop, same effect.
