Right. This is HD-input or SD-input. I've got much higher recording  
quality than playback.

Hrm... I can get a digital-in SD program. I should record one and  
compare that to the cable-in PVR recording. They should just be  
MPEG-2, but hey...

Also interesting that the S-video out ignores modelines. I know you  
can futz with resolutions, but I thought you could also do refresh  
rates. I guess not.

In MythTV? I believe that my output is set, but I'll check.

I'll look that up. Thanks!
