Did you mean DVD recorder or DVR?


Will you watch the show and erase or store on a hard drive or burn to DVD?


You have alot of options. Answer these questions and we can better guide you

Do you mean save them to DVD or just save them on the recorder?


If you want over the air HDTV, then Tivo Series 3 is your best bet, but expensive.. though you can transfer lifetime subscription from an existing tivo for $199 on series 3s bought through the end of this month. (It also does OTA analog, and analog and digital on cable, and replaces the cable box.)

Thanks for the info.

If you don't mind viewing your HD-OTA in 480i you could pick up a fairly inexpensive DVD recorder and output from your TV into a DVD recorder. The picture quality of high def in 480i is actually pretty good


The other options I outlined above preserve high def but at a significantly higher $$$$
