OTA with a DVR and channel guide?

I've been with Shaw Direct / Starchoice since 2000 and am considering going OTA due a steady reduction in HD PQ over the years. The only thing holding me back is a perceived lack of recording options. I use a DVR to record all my programs and watch nothing in 'real time'.

Do the antennae companies have DVRs and if so which one would give me full sat like DVR functionality, ie channel guide, 30 skip ahead, etc? If this type of product exists then I'm going OTA.

P.S. not interested in recording to a PC....
