Please pardon the newbie question.
I’m curious if there are any standalone Blu-Ray recorders on the market, similar to the standalone standard-definition DVD recorders that are still floating around. My hunch is that such recorders—if they even exist—would be expensive and hard to find at this point.
I’m interested in this type of standalone recorder rather than any setup that involves capturing on a PC and then burning to a Blu-Ray disc.

The popular Blu-ray recorders made for Japan, Europe, and Australia were only able to capture in HD from broadcast TV sources available in those regions via their DTV tuners.

Thanks. Yes, when searching I only found Blu-Ray recorders for those countries/regions as well, and the restrictions on HDMI-in recording would limit their usefulness to me anyway.
has component video inputs for HD analog input and SDI connections for digital HD input. Unfortunately, the component video connections are not as useful as they would have been a few years ago. Many of the newest set-top boxes required to access paid TV services and streaming services no longer have component video connections. The SDI connections are for connecting professional video equipment and, in general, are not useful to consumers.
[Edit]My mistake. The JVC SR-HD2700 doesn't have component video input connections. It only has component video output connections. The JVC SR-HD2700 was very expensive anyway. I think it cost over $3000 when it was still being made.

Use an HDMI splitter that strips HDCP.
