Technology Question

Suppose one has an older television, with only an analog input. And one does not spend money on cable or FIOS television or such because one watches no more than 2 hours of television a week most of the time. (Baseball can be an exception, but that is what sports bars are for.)

Is there any reason why a DVD-R/VCR combo with a built-in digital tuner could not also function as the digital converter box for such a TV? That is, one would leave the TV tuned to channel 3 and always watch through the DVD-R/VCR.

My motivation for asking is that this would take up less room than having a separate convertor box. And I can probably get a good price on the DVD-R/VCR right now with Circuit City closing.
