> 1) Does the XBox version of Linux/MythTV support HDTV output?  I know

I've read reports of people getting 480p to sort of work, but the XBox
isn't powerful enough to decode real HD.  Expect to get 480i, and you
won't be disappointed :)

It's a standard RCA DVD remote.  Replacements are cheap and plentiful.

I'd just go with the MS dongle.  It works quite well, and the MythXbox
scripts set it up for you.
