What would be my best source for HD Content and the best PVR to capture that content?

What would be my best source for HD content and the best PVR to capture that content? I just purchased a new HDTV. I have a Direct TV Tivo box that is only standard def. I figure as long as I have an HDTV though, I should try to get the most out of it. It seems my options are Direct TV with their HD PVR, a Direct TV HD receiver and an HD TiVo or MythTV set up, cable and one of their PVRs or cable and a Tivo or MythTV set up. [more inside]

HDTV in Flux

HDTV filter: (Seems like I ask quite a few electronics questions...) We bought a new television about 3 months ago, direct from Samsung (refurbished), and it seems to work fine, with the exception of a waviness around stark vertical lines and text. For example, when the TiVo menu is up, I can see the text sort of fluxing a bit. It's not horrible, but I find it distracting.

I've been doing some reading about similar problems and have been told to try unplugging the cable, which I've done, to no avail. That solves nothing. I've also read about how it might be a problem with grounding, so I've opened the outlet and connected the green screw to the metal outlet box... also, no luck. [And yes, I shut of the power first.]

Any other ideas here? I'm getting this problem from all the inputs on the TV (including the DVD player) and can't figure out anything else to try, short of dragging this heavy thing across the room and plugging it in elsewhere to see if that helps. Any good advice from those in the know?

I also can't return the television-- it's too late.
