Newbee needs some help

Starting from scratch.....

I am a novice at this and really don't want to earn an advanced degree in electrical engineering, but....

What I want is probably what everyone wants and can't find. I have HD cable with Time Warner and would like to hook up a DVR so that I can record the content I receive so that I can watch it at my convenience. I would like the abiliity to hook up a larger hard drive to keep more movies, etc, or ideally, I would like to be able to burn a DVD to use on my other television.

Now, I know that there are hundreds, probably thousands of you looking at this and shaking your heads and saying what a dufus, but, I am a senior citizen who recently retired and find that I am watching more television than in the past and would like to keep a library of my favorites.

Before you tell me to buy a watzit and tear it apart and hook in zoomit500 and back flush to reset the PRM counter... keep in mind that I am not familiar at all with this stuff.

Your help is greatly apprciated.
