Cable Card alternatives

Is there any devices that does not need a PC but will work with a cable card to give a simple screen guide and HD? I'm tired of the cable provided boxes that just SUCK

Tivo is what I chose in the same situation.

Without a PC, your only options other than the set-top-box would be a TV with a cable card slot, or a TIVO unit.

I wonder if a used Moxi set-top would work? (They've stopped selling directly to the consumers but they haven't stopped guide services, etc to existing customers and you can still activate one through their website).

TIVO would be great if it wasn't $20.00 a month..

$17.00 but, I don't want to pay $20, $20. $20 plus the cable card fee hence why I'm looking for a box that you can slide the cable card in and not spend the $15.00 a month for the standard boxes (craplorer 4240HDC with 1998 graphics)
