My original question was how to enable automatic transcoding of the HDTV to
720x480 MPEG2, I do run the Myth Frontend on the box that is the backend. My
question was how do I make the automatic transcoding work.

"admins" couldn't get the nVidia drivers installed in 4 hours?!? MediaMVP
for a hidef frontend?!? WTF ). 

No one here said put the loud box in the living room or buy a new one, you
said you where considering buying a new box.  I suggested quieting the old

you can use the built-in automatic transcode to bring the HDTV files down to
something your existing box can play on a SDTV. 

zap2it has been going through some changes lately.  This my be your problem
