Since we got DirecTV I've used the DVR for television (program) recording. I have a Panasonic EA-18 for saving anything worth keeping from the DVR. On another setup I have an antenna and converter box to get older movies from Antenna TV, THIS, and Bounce TV. I use my old Panasonic DMR ES-10 to save them, then edit out commercials on my computer.
I also use the 10 to copy VCR tapes (that I own) to DVDs for safekeeping.
I also have a Lite-On DVDR that I take "on the road" and record from hotel TV systems. I used to take my Panasonic DMR ES-15 but I've gotten a little paranoid about wear and tear, so it's retired to my main equipment stack.
So yeah, one way or another I use the DVDRs to record from TV. But I'm (verrrrrrrrrrry) gradually converting my tapes to discs.
I may record some programming from my Roku but I haven't done that yet.
