Thank you for attempting to specify what i was talking about, but when I
said "hardware" I was talking about DVB settop boxes.
This could probably have been inferred from the fact that the entire thread
is about Dish Network and Myth.
(although all HDTV's--those with ATSC tuners, as

Lest my point be unnecessarily muddled, I should restate my point (an
entirely unimportant one. mind you) - The vast majority of current DVB
recievers cannot decode high definition MPEG2 signals.
