    Does the Pioneer Elite DVR-57H DVD receive and record HD channels and video. I was originally looking at DVRs for simply copy VHS to Digital. When I came across the DVR-810 in a forum it sounded awesome. It had a DVD burner, and a tuner and the TiVo lifetime basic service. Later I found out the tuner did not receive HD channels and it did not record in HD. I don't know if this is a factor when recording VHS tapes but it is with over the air or cable HD. I have heard really good things about the Pioneers so I was wondering which other ones come with the TiVO service and HD support.
    Also on the TiVo lifetime, is that built into all of the DVR-57H and DVR-810s or was that an option.

    They do not support HD, you even say so in your post, NO DVD units supported HD and they're all quite old at this point.
    The units have Tivo Basic, 3-days of guide info for free, if you want more you need to purchase monthly or lifetime service.
