So is that to say, I may be right on the edge? I don't anticipating
trying HD anytime soon even though I have an HD compatible 65" wide
screen. My TV could look so much better, but I don't (currently) have
any nice HD content at my disposal (OTA would be a joke where I live).
I'll probably go HD satellite at some point in the future. Not sure on
Myth's support of that either, I assume requires an Air2PC card?
Oh, that reminds me, I saw this:
It seems like a joke, but is there any support for such a device in
Linux? Any way to tune satellite directly without using the DSS box?
