ReplayTV software;

2 or more tuners, all available for simultaneous recording/watching;

100+ hours of space at highest quality;

Built-in Commercial Advance algorithm;

Caller ID display on TV;

100 MBit ethernet to interface with home LANs;

Be cool to the touch, so other AV components can be stacked upon it;

Be user-upgradable without the need for an entirely new unit;

Cost less than $200;

MPEG-4 encoder;

HDTV 720p and 1080i support;

DD 5.1 and DTS 5.1 audio;

Maybe an internal line doubler so MPEG encoding could be run on a progressive signal;

Composite (Y, Cr, Cb) video outputs;

TOSLink optical digital audio output;

Internal DVD-RW drive for permanent archiving;

Internal DVD software for playing those DVD-Rs and DVDs;

Firewire <ahem> working, that is <ahem> for output for video editing;

Internal digital cable decoder;

Internal DSS equipment;

Open-sourced DVR operating system so users can enhance the OS themselves in case the media giants intimidate Replay into removing QuickSkip and other user-friendly/corp-unfriendly technology;

Discrete water outputs and internal water buffer (i.e. the kitchen sink).

A man can dream, can't he?
