We are leasing a condo south of town and the complex has cable (Coral). If I buy a DVR in the states, what kind would work or would it work?

I have a DVR that works exactly like a VCR. I have to tell it it what channel to record, what time to start and what time to stop. CCV doesn't have the same on-screen digital programming as companies in the US and Canada so you cannot search by show title, etc. IF you have DirecTV, TiVo type DVRs will work great.

What's the make and model of the one you have? I'm using a computer based one and have all kinds of problems with it and the playback quality isn't that great.

I have a Magnavox 320 gig with DVD burner/player. I bought it on Amazon but they also sell them at Walmart. Works great. My only beef is that I have to reprogram it after every power outage.

Like this one?

http://www.amazon.com/Magnavox-MDR5...p;sr=8-1&keywords=Magnavox+DVR+320GB

Does it get all of the channels like 113.1 and such?

That would be the one! Yes you get all the digital channels. The only problem is, if you are a channel surfer, you have to press the 'DTV' button to access the digital channels then 'DTV' button again to go back to the analog.
