JVC has a D-VHS VCR that seems like it would fit your requirements. Model HM-DH30000 has an OTA tuner that supports all 18 ATSC broadcast formats.

According to reliable reports here, the Sony will not act as a DTV source for the JVC, or any other DVHS deck. In spite of the fact all IEEE1394 communication is two way by it's nature, the Sony does not allow the DTV signal to leave it for any reason. This is very unusual, in that the other DTV tuner product on the market with IEEE1394, the new Mitsubishi HDTV's, do provide an IEEE1394 DTV output for recording of OTA signals.
To the best of my knowledge, there is no workable method of using the Sony IEEE1394 interface to record to a DVHS deck at this time.

I had the the JVC 30000 on hand with the 34XBR2 when I made my evaluations. I confirmed the one way connectivity with Sony.

How do I verify whether it can or cannot (or verify that the Sony iLink is indeed bi-directional).
