Daft question smuggs, but why are you downloading at 1080p? If you go into your iTunes preferences, then Store, you can select 720p or 1080p when downloading HD videos. Given that you've got an iPad2, I'd change the setting to 720p and leave it at that.

The iPad 2 and Iphone 4s don't support 1080p content

Fine I had 1080p stored on hardrive and on the iPad 2 I can download 720p and just delete it when I've finished I just have to remember to keep 4 gb free at all times to allow room.
