[mythtv-users] Think my current myth box can support HD?

My current 32 inch old TV is on its way out.  I have mixed feelings
about this.  On the one hand I'm excited about purchasing a TV not made
in the last century.  On the other hand, it may mean giving up my analog
cable, dual pvr 150 tuners which myth tunes directly, etc.

My first concern is, will the box handling my mythtv duties be up for
the challenge?  I have no problem upgrading some parts (storage, memory,
video card, etc), but I'd like to avoid a complete replacement.

I'm seeking honest opinions... thanks...
