Myth is much more then a DVR and plus the cost of the Satelite DVR's will 
still be more then the cost of Myth + Subscription. 

I have an HDTV on order (Panasonic PZ77U 42") and plan on getting an HD 
Capable card (HD Home Run most likely) to capture HD Content. 

I don't expect to move to any Cable / Satelite box because of cost and the 
loss of functionality (I use the Music / DVD Rip / etc quite extensively).
