CBS announced on June 15th that they are in the process of remastering the original MacGyver series to HD and that Seasons 1-3 are already completed with all 7 seasons planned to be completed by the end of the year.
The news release on the CBS site includes a before and after video comparing scenes in SD with their new HD counterparts showing an impressive difference in quality.

No word yet how the new HD versions will be distributed.
Take a look at the quality difference:
