You need external USB disk, which your TV will format to XFS file system. All data on HDD will be lost. Be prepared.
Sometimes large USB pen is enough too, but TV is making some r/w, size checks and usually most pen drives are rejected.

PvR works only for internal digital sources but not for external, connected over cables even digital.

Briefly: works only for dvb-t,c,s2 depends from tuner which on tv.

Yes you can use AC CI module to encode the signal directly on the TV
And Yes you can record to hdd as the signal is comming from your tune
