Not to thread-hijack... but if anyone's using TW + MythTV + recording HD shows... I'm interested in what you're recording HD. I'm trying to get away from using their DVR for more reasons than I can list here. I'd like to set something up, but I'm not 100% sure on the hardware that's going to be required (with my end goal in getting some of the HD content FOX/NBC/USA... maybe HBO).

What problems are you having using Uverse with mythTV?  I hear mixed reviews but some folks on the mythTV list seem to have it working.

That said, I still use mythTV with analog cable (like Sean, and it works well enough), and I recently added an HD homerun for Over The Air HD.  Aside from probably needing a better antenna I couldn't be happier.  I'm dreading the switch to digital cable, and hoping we get done with all this "channel" nonsense and I can order shows a-la-carte when I finally have to give up the analog tuner.

TWC is only allowing digital cable with new accounts now (from what I understand), so you might want to find a digital TWC user with mythTV to check before you switch.
