No, you should be able to get a recording (and playback) that most
viewers would not be able to tell from "live" TV, unless you have some
very critical (and observant) viewers.

If you are not, the first thing to do is determine if the problem is
with the recording or the playback. Try playing back a known good
recording, then try playing back a Myth recording with something other
than Myth.

The recording you posted looked pretty good to me except for the
interlace artifacts.
