     The older TV can display the higher res recordings. You just need
a sufficiently powerful frontend to handle the decoding. Any cheap ION
box is more than adequate for this.

     You really don't have to go to all of the trouble of replicating 
Elgato's dual recording approach. MythTV can scale the high res stuff.
