I have a satellite setup to receive the Free to Air channels. There is some channels on there that I would like to record. The receiver I have does not have a DVR built in and I don't want to buy another receiver. I would like get a stand alone DVD recorder + HD to record my shows. Any suggestions? I'd like to stay around 200-300$ range.

Your cheapest bet is a stand alone DVD recorder with a hard drive. Panasonic and pioneer have some good ones. If you want to get a real DVR with a nicer guide and better features, you only have 2 options.
A tivo is pretty cheap but you have to pay $20 a month subscription fee (only $8.31 with a 3 year pre-pay) You can find an old replay on Ebay for about $300-400 with a lifetime subscription, I recommend a 5000 series if you go that route.

Here is a little review of that one. It looks like people who got one were pretty happy with it. It has 30 second quick skip which is a big plus in my book.
