    Hi Everyone,

    It's time to get a digital recorder. I only have a couple of requirements:
    1. It must have a DVD player/burner
    2. It must be free service! I won't pay for TiVo!
    3. It must work with a Cablevision cable box
    4. If it can do HD I'd be really happy

    I have seen that Pioneer and Toshiba have a TiVo "lite" which only allows 3 days advance programming which is included with their DVR/DVD combos which run around 350 for one with a 160GB drive.

    Do most cable boxes have a control connector so they can be controlled by the DVRs?

    Someone said something about waiting until April for the "new" versions...since it's almost April, is it worth waiting?

    Panasonic's DMReh50s has a 100G hard drive and sniffs the tv guide off the cable. Its tv guide goes about 7-8 days in advance. I got one at Circuit City for ~$350
