What is the best way to save my HD recordings from my DVR box so I can view it later on?

I am about to turn in my DVR box back to Time Warner Cable. But before I get rid of the box, I want to save some recordings to either DVD or my computer's hard drive. I researched a little about transferring files from the box directly to computer (via firewire cable) and found out it’s not possible because of some copyright restrictions (I could be wrong). I would love to keep the HD resolution of these programs but I am not limited to it. I was wondering if I should buy one of those DVD recorders or maybe a TV tuner for my computer. If I went with the DVD recorder, will it record in widescreen ratio (16:9) like the program is? Please give me some ideas or your experiences. Thanks in advance.
I have a Scientific Atlanta Explorer 8300HD box.
