I am a newbie and I have just about given up on HDTV. It seems so complicated, restrictive and expensive. I presently use Panasonic HDD DVD recorders to time shift and archive (to DVD-RAM) TV programs (all of this is, of course, SDTV). I get basic cable for my SDTV and hope to do HDTV OTA (cable HDTV rates are just way too high). It seems there is no such thing as an HDD HDTV recorder that works OTA. It seems the worthless suits at the major labels have blocked these. Please can anyone tell me is there anyway to reasonably (hopefully without using a computer) record HDTV to an HDD OTA and watch it later. If I could then archive it that would be wonderful.
