1. Will Tivo premeire hampen my Antenna's performance like the digital/analog box did?
2. Could it be the problem with Antenna Performance is due that RDRVX521 which was made in 2006 is too old? Will TIVO work better?
Your Sony RDRVX521 apparently has only an analog tuner, so you need to use a converter box with it to receive digital signals. The TiVo Premiere has two tuners capable of tuning ATSC digital antenna signals, so no converter box is needed, and you certainly don't want to use one with it.
I can't comment on the TERK FDTVO, but if you feed the TiVo Premiere a good digital signal, you should see a gorgeous picture. Note that the Premiere can't output an RF signal. It outputs HDMI video/audio, component video, composite video, and appropriate audio to go with those.
