I'm also on Knology Cable and only recently upgraded to Digital Cable.
I've been using my HDHR Prime to record most of the channels except for the
analog ones, where I need to use my old PVR-500.  I can't record the
various HD non-premium channels, either.  It's better than Time-Warner
Cable which locked up every channel except for the local ones.

Please excuse the elementary question, but what other methods would you use
to record the non-premium HD channels?  Would it involve using a blaster, a
set-top box and some other type of recorder?
