Brad:  Yeah, I guess I forgot to mention, I am going from RCA out the 
back of the U-Verse STB into the line-in port on the PVR-150 card.

The set top boxes have quite the array of outputs on them...  Component, 
S-Video, Composite, HDMI... optical audio, RCA audio.

As far as recording HD...  When the Hauppauge HD-PVR comes out, you 
should be able to use that and pull component video from the STB into 
Myth.  (See the other thread going on right now about the HD-PVR).

A set top box is required at each television.  I was told you could have 
one DVR + up to 3 additional set top boxes.
