Need Help Finding a DVR to Record 24/7 Output of Security System?

My old Sony Series 1 TiVo is on its last legs. I've been using that unit as a convenient way to monitor and review the output of my home security DVR system. The security system is in the basement, where the camera connections terminate, and the TiVo is upstairs where I can easily review the recorded output from the security DVR.

In a replacement I need a DVR that can preferably record 12 or 24 hour blocks of "programming" repeating daily. For inputs I can use either HDMI or RF from an RF modulator outputting to channel 74 on coax. I need the DVR to be able to record over the oldest recording once the storage is full. Like a TiVo, I would like to be able to review a segment without having to stop the recording process. Output from the new DVR serving as pass-through for live viewing or reviewing.

I've searched Amazon and other sites and found several that come close, but most seem to not overwrite the oldest recording. Any suggestions (or even a way to make one of the Series 3, 4 or 5 TiVos to work) would be greatly appreciated.
