Well, that photo appears to be a standard-def RF modulator. Seeing the make/model front of that box would confirm, but I'm pretty sure (although there's no audio connected!).
Which if the former owner was using local modulator(s) to distribute to the rest of the house, that would explain why the cableco box didn't work, as the wiring would have been re-configured...
You say you're willing to buy the HD distribution gear - you might prepare yourself for sticker shock. Rental fees on a small number of additional set-top boxes would give more functionality for the money...
