The units you are buying now are not intended to handle everything that is to come. I would guess the commercial selling lifespan of a TiVo is 3-5 years max, probably less.
[Aside: this has nothing to do with how long they last; I am talking about how long a "series" stays on the market.]
There is -zero- chance 4k is coming to regular TV in the next few years. Maybe five or ten years? And by then, there will be a newer model.
Spend your brain cells worrying about something else.
