First, I am not sure if this is the right forum. Please let me know if I should post somewhere else.
Here are the facts:
I have Time Warner Cable.
I am adding a 2nd tv. (First tv I rent the HD DVR cable box from TW)
For the 2nd tv I want a basic DVR unit that I can buy and plug in the TW cable card.
I don't want to have to pay for any monthly subscription.
I don't want to have to use my PC as part of the set up.
What I would suggest is the Magnavox RMDR515H/F7. This is a DVR with a DVD burner and a 500GB hard drive built in. It has a nice digital tuner that can pick up most of the digital cable signals, I am not sure about Time Warner, and has some added features that you can check at:
