I currently have Dish Network using their 522 DVR dual tuner receiver. I was wondering if there was a standalone receiver out there that would give us this same type of functionality, for use with basic cable or sat?

With the 522, we can be hooked up on two separate TVs (comes w/separate remotes) and control the unit-- record two channels, while watching separate recorded shows on each TV. I was reading on the Tivo units and it appears that you can only do this with one TV (you can only mirror the output)-- does any other PVR manufacturer have something similar to the 522? (aside from Comcast/TWC, etc). I know I could set this up fairly easily with a pc, but would prefer something set-top.
