[mythtv-users] Confusion about Output Cards.

I am putting together a Myth TV system mainly to have menu based playback 
of my Movie Collection (I started keeping .iso's of my kids films as they 
tend to wreck them alot.)

When I saw MythTV, it was as a search for a video JukeBox. While I'll 
definately set up the whole thing, I see a lot of emphasis on input cards, 
but my concern is getting the best audio/video output to my Sony Wega 
HDTV and the Dream System surround sound.

To get good quality playback from hard drive stored movies, what should I 
be looking for? So far I have seen benefits posted on the PVR-350 for it's 
decoder in hardware. But that's about it. What kind of connection to a 
sound system can I expect? Or to an HDTV?

I welcome even the "go read this, idiot" replies :) I have about wore 
Google out.
