On my el-cheopo TV I can't tell the difference between the two.  Maybe on a
real expensive fancy TV you will??  I'm using the PVR-350 TV out card.
The advantage to Myth is that as soon as you pop a DVD in and select it on
the menu it's up on the screen almost instantly (at least on my box, 2.4Ghz
cel).  With our regular DVD player (about 2 years old now) it takes a good
15 or 20 seconds before a DVD's on the screen to watch.
