I have a stand alone Sony DVR. 500 GB and is HD that comes with a cable card slot. It worked great without the cable card and had the TV guide info that came from the analog PBS channel. But when the US switched to digital I couldn't use it without the cable card (there was no way to set the time manually) and I've been too lazy to go get one. I'd be willing to make a deal. A DVR for some future books.
