Actually an SD recording will look like crap on a high res monitor of
your "beefy windows machine", unless you can get a player that does
really good deinterlacing and scaling. Another way of looking at this
is that you will benefit from VDPAU whether you are having issues with
your PVR-150 or not. It will improve the image quality of everything
you play back on your mythtv system over what you will get with the
current ATI drivers/hardware. You can get a VDPAU card for $30-$40
