What is the best way to record TV for long term storage. (like a VCR in the good ol' days, but with better HD qualities)!
I have my HD DVR(HR20-700) connected via S-Video to a Sony GX-315 DVD recorder(this is approx. a 7-yr-old model) and when I record programs with the DVD recorder set for Progressive Scan the quality of the DVD recordings at SP speed(up to 2 Hrs on a standard DVD-R), when the "source" program on my HR20 was recorded in HD, is equal to the quality of a "standard store-bought DVD movie". When they are played back on my Bluray player(which upconverts to HD) there are very good quality(not HD, but very good). I concur with user dcd, that a DVD recorder is your best option for recording your son's games.
