I'm very happy with the HD playback on both my 1.83 and 1.66 Minis! There may be some minor glitches in the first 30 seconds of playback. I suspect Myth is quite memory hungry and stuff is spooling off to VM. After that, however, both are quite able to keep up with anything I record. That includes a couple of 1080i channels that are using the full 19 Mbit stream. IOW, I see no difference between stuff playing live via the TV's ATSC receiver v. shows that I've recorded with Myth.
