    Hi there,
    Anybody know 'what the deal' is with installing a cable card into a Roamio OTA unit?
    I never quite understood how, or what, actually distinguishes these units from one another. They both have the card slot / compartment. So why is one sold as "OTA" unit, and the other one is either / or? Are they running different software? Is the CC compartment in the OTA unit disconnected?
    Thanks for any insight.
