A clarification:
The HD-PVR that I was talking about is a card sold by Hauppague which 
encodes component HD into h264 in hardware (much like the PVR250 but for 
HD).  My understanding is that there are patches for Myth to use it 
(it's pretty new), but don't know the details.

It should allow you to encode HD from any source supporting 
component-out, and without the pain that is CoreAVC
