Exactly what I was looking for. However, I have never heard of a 
'Polaroid' branded TV. I will do some googleing.

I have been running mythtv for over 2 years....
I have a Hauppuage 500 and an HDHomeRun connected to the myth box.
My wife prefers to just channel surf when she is watching in the afternoon.
And at the moment, my Via SP13000 has some problems with displaying full 
720p and 1080i output. Kinda difficult to watch a blank dark blue 
screen, which is what I get for 1080i...It's a Via xvmc thing. Those 
recordings play back beautifully here at work using the nvidia card.
