As I understand it playback of UK High Definition recordings on PC
hardware is very challenging at the moment, likely requiring dedicated
decoder hardware.

Last time I checked,  myth couldn't capture the signal (I used
dvbstream), even though the cards might be capable (look on the devs
list for progress).

What I'm saying is, if you're interested in HD in the UK, do your own
research before spending any money on PC hardware, and don't expect
wife-friendly results yet.  Without buying a dedicated set-top box I'd
say it's at the 'serious enthusiasts only' stage.
