This answer is -very- misleading. Yes, you can use your Myth box as an
HD box but only in -very- limited circumstances. You will be only be
able to receive HD from your local TV stations or possibly a few
unencrypted channels on your cable system (probably just the local
stations and maybe a handful of others). You will -not- be able to
receive any HD programming from DirecTV or Dish. You'll need a regular
cable (or satellite) box to supplement the Myth box.
