Are there any HD PVRs that do this...?

Are there any HD recording units that:

- Record 1080i via a component input to an internal hard drive

- Have an HDMI output for playback of recorded material (or failing that, a component output at least)

- Will allow unencrypted transfer of the recorded files to a PC for archiving

- Doesn't have to be a freeview or freesat or any other type of TV receiver, just a unit for recording the component iinput only

Is there anything out there that actually does this? The closest I can see is the Hauppauge, but this does not have an internal hard drive I believe, and must be hooked up permanently to a PC.



So far as I am aware the Hauppauge is the only recorder of this type... and is likely to disappear in a few years as almost nothing will be available that will produce HD via component.
