    Is there a DVR with HDMI input or component cable input, but only a one-time fee and can copy encrypted channels (HD or SD) that doesn't use a CableCard.

    Elgato products don't do it. TiVo does it but I don't like the monthly fee and they want me to get rid of my Verizon FIOS Box.

    What would be even better is a DVR that has a HDMI in and out that connects from my Verizon FiOS HD Cable Box to the DVR then from the DVR into the HDTV.

    Devices on the receiving end of HDMI signals have to be "safe" as defined by the content industries. It's very hard to find a legit device that will work. When going from HD cable box to TV via HDMI, the TV has to be in the supported device category. It's all part of the DRM shenanigans that the content people demand.
