    There aren’t many out-of-the-box solutions.
    The market for out of the box PVRs is pretty much dead.

    I think this is due to the high cost of the hardware. Tivo and Cable companies have cheaper hardware available because they have monthly fees coming in.

    I’m in a similar situation as you. I use a computer with a Digital TV Tuner running Windows 7 Media Center to record TV. Naturally it isn’t cheap if you don’t have spare hardware laying around, but I think it provides the best balance of features and choice with the ability to add storage space yourself.
