Odd Sized Cable Card

I'm an American living in Papua New Guinea, a third world country located just north of Australia. My cable company here is Hitron. They do not offer a DVR option currently, so I'd like to buy my own. I've never seen a "cable card" like the one Hitron uses here. It is the same size as a credit card (see image below).

Can I just buy my own PVR and slide the cable card in and everything will work?
Do you have any suggestions on PVR's that will work with my type of card?

(Asking these questions to the staff elicits blank stares. They do not even know what DVRs or PVRs are."

Below are images of the cable box and cable "decoder" that Hitron provides me. Thanks!
