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.
