I am looking for the best way to record TV to a hard drive. I would like it to be cheap, and 1080p, but I can cope with less on those two options. I want to record HBO, comedy central, etc. and I believe these options are encrypted to the point that I am unable to record these, or I will be unable to do so in the near future with a tv tuner card. Just to clear up any potential confusion, I plan to pay for the cable that I will record, but I want to be able to record it to a hard drive which I can manipulate, not a proprietary TiVo box that I have to rent. Thanks for any help.
