Can the Tivo TCD746320 be used for OTA?

I am in Ontario,Canada and thinking of buying the following on Ebay:



TiVo Premiere Receiver Series 4 in Box TCD746320 HD

Can this be used for OTA,ie: HD Broadcasts?

btw: Is it possible to buy one on the TIVO website and have it shipped to Canada?

Thankyou

Yeah,I found that one after I posted,forgetting that I'd already made an inquiry.

One point that has had me confused is that if you look on weaknees.com,they state what Tivo models can be used,then state that the series 4 cannot be used and yet,the one I was looking at on Fleabay says : "TiVo Premiere Receiver Series 4 TCD746320 "

Anyay,I wonder if it's even worth it,considering that here we only have: 1 analog(HD in Spring),2 HDs(1 has a SD sub channel)...not that I'm complaining,mind you.Afterall,some have none!

There is a lot of confusion about the "4" in the model names.

The entire Premiere line is considered "Series 4."

They have 2 models of Premiere that are called the "Premiere 4" and the "Premiere XL4." These have 4 in the name because they have four (cable-only) tuners. The regular "Premiere" and "Premiere XL" have two tuners and can record cable and OTA.

Each ebay lister decides where a item can be shipped. And they usually state right on the listing. I don't ship anything to Canada because I was cheated twice on Canada dealings. And Paypal doesn't have buyer protection if shipped out of the usa.
