An OSX backend can capture over Firewire, ATSC/QAM-64/QAM-256, DVB-T/C,
and IPTV. You can not capture DVB-S or nor any encrypted DVB, and you
can not capture analog video of any sort (so no HD-PVR). For ATSC/QAM
and DVB-T/C you need a HDHomeRun of the correct sort, the others are
supported by hardware built into the Macintosh.

While there is no choice of hardware, it's unfair to say you can not
record any media on OSX.
