[DVR] DVR Options with FIOS TV

We currently have Frontier FIOS TV, and have a TiVo with a Frontier cablecard in it. Our TiVo is starting to crap out, and I'm not happy with their quality as of late, so I'm looking to replace, but not with a TiVo. We looked at the Hopper from Dish TV, but no one at Dish can tell me if it will work in a non-Dish environment. Will it? And does it take cablecards?

If not (or in addition to), if anyone has a non-TiVo DVR suggestion, please let me know. Thanks!

The Hopper or Joey will only work on Dish. There is no way to get the firmware download from Dish unless you are on their system.

Your options are basically a FIOS DVR, Tivo, or a PC based system.
