Thanks in advance,
As others have already pointed out no Roamio can do OTA and CABLE concurrently like the two tuner premieres can.
I currently have two Premiere's they have both had both an OTA antenna and CABLE card. Currently they are both OTA only. I have contemplated adding a Roamio basic and putting a cable card on it. And just putting it in the back somewhere not directly connected to a TV (four cable tuners one cable card)
What I'm getting at is you can do a mixture of TiVo's. If you decide that perhaps you only need two OTA tuners you could find a used two tuner Premiere fairly inexpensively. Alternately get a Roamio OTA (no lifetime available) or a second Roamio basic.
