Yes, if you have a 3rd party DVR/STB like Tivo, you will need to get a cable card and have it authorized for the device.  I would verify that your DVR works with the service.

I have a HDD & DVD Player/Recorder with Digital Tuner, by Magnavox so how would I find out if it is compatible?

I suspect this device will not work on the FiOS network.  As mentioned the Tivo units operate correctly using a CableCard, but I have not heard of other devices that do so.  If you give us the details of the device including  model number, perhaps another user here will be able to help.
