need hd screenshots-- hardware advice?

I'm working on a Lost site. I need to capture high def screenshots to have on the site. right now I have a standard PVR-250. however, right now I'm just set up to recieve standard def signals.

here's an example of one of the screens (direct from source, I didn't change the dimensions, etc):

at first I was mostly content with this quality, but then I saw the screens from another site.

how are they achieving that sort of resolution? I thought "true" hd capture wasn't even possible? are they just upscaling the resolution of images?

in short: if I want to get the highest quality possible, should I be looking at hardware to capture in hd? can hardware capture in true hd-- ie, will I have a video that's 720/1080 pixels tall? what kind of hardware would you suggest for that? how much would I be looking at?
