I know Gefen has released an HD PVR that records from component ins; you can take a look at the relevant thread here. Unfortunately that's probably your only option, if OTA is out and you're using cable (since Canadian cablecos aren't subject to CableCARD, so TiVo is right out). There's also an HD capture card out if you're interested in the HTPC route, I believe it's made by Hauppauge; however, I imagine that'd be a more expensive route.
