    Sorry, if this is a newbie question, but I've been out of the home theater market for a few years (since i purchased all new equipment).

    I'm now want to purchase a DVDR or DVDR w/ hard drive and wanted to find out the difference between those and a Tivo like service where you need to pay a monthly fee?

    I'd rather not pay a monthly fee just to record TV - so i was wondering what other benefits there are if any?

    Also, what would be the best non-fee based DVDR piece of equipment I might want to look into?

    Thanks
