NO. Digital *does not mean* that the channel is HD. Digital means that the
broadcaster has the choice of using HD for that channel. Digital channels may be
either SD or HD.
Obviously, you can only watch HD channels in HD resolution if your TV is capable
of it, otherwise you'll get nothing. If you run your transmission through a Myth
system, however, it may be able to downscale the HD so that it can be viewed on
a standard-definition TV (likely your 2nd, 3rd,... TV).
