One unit I can recommend is the RCA Scenium DRC7005N. This is a combination DVD Player and PVR. This can either record using basic timers (up to 16) or via a free (GemStar I think) graphical guide (broadcast by some TV stations). I live overseas so I just use the timers.
The unit has been discussed in this forum (do a search). The unit comes with a 40 GB hard drive, but can be easily upgraded to a larger drive (which I did myself with an 80 GB unit) for greater recording time.
RCA made an earlier model (the DRS7000N) which I also own. It cannot be upgraded, and while it works OK, its operating performance is more sluggish than the 7005N.
I bought my 7005N new from Walmart because they would ship to my APO address. But you could probably find one cheaper elsewhere.
