I too lost the ability to use my HD-PVR when an updated cable box 
dropped the component video output option and Firewire control.

You may want to check out the ability to use a Cox-provided cable card 
inserted into a HD-Homerun device that you own.  I continue to use an 
HDHomeRun PRIME device  for my recordings, and it works well.  With two 
caveats, I suppose:
1) Cox may charge you a small monthly fee for cable card rental.
2) Depending on how Cox has their channels configured, not all of your 
channels may be available via such a device.  I believe that it's up to 
your provider to decide which channels to protect with DRM.  Such 
protected channels will not be recordable, because only pirates do such
