I am looking for a way to lessen the cost for cabel without loosing my choices. I have 3 DVR'S and at 6 or 8 dollars rental each it adds up.

Yes and no. You'll still have to rent CableCARDS (at the tune of $2-$4 per device), but no DVR rental fees or monthly service fees to the cable company.

Why do you need 3 DVRs? Is there really that much to record?

You may be able to replace all of them with an HDHomerun prime, 1 cable card and Windows 7 machine as a server, then use XBox360s on each TV as frontends. I have never used this configuration so can't vounch for it, I use MythTV and OTA, but in theory you should be able to get all your channels including those marked Copy Once this way.
