    I ended up buying the wrong version of a Tivo Roamio on Ebay, as I got the Roamio Plus, and I wanted a version that is used with OTA. My loss is your gain, as I got a pretty good deal on the Tivo. Just looking to get my money back at this point. Tivo Roamio Plus 1TB with Lifetime Service. Includes Remote and Power Cord. It has been factory Reset and ready to go. $210 which includes shipping. It's ready to be shipped out ASAP. If you are located in Central Illinois (Peoria Area), I can exchange it in person for cheaper.

    I might be interested. Waiting to hear if my Bolt can be repaired.

    You unit takes a cablecard, yes?

    Yes, you are correct, this unit only takes an M cablecard and does not work with OTA. I missed the whole Tivo Roamio "Plus" vs. Tivo Roamio "Pro" on the auction, and I cut the cord 5+ years ago.

    AFAIK, the difference between "Plus" and "Pro" is just the bigger hard drive. (source: TiVo® Roamio Comparison Chart - compare the TiVo Roamio Models)

    I think you'd want just the plain "Tivo Roamio" OTA version.

    I hope to hear from Weaknees about my Bolt repair very soon. If it's not repairable, I'll take it.

    edit: Weaknees has what you want for $279 incl Lifetime service: TiVo Roamio OTA and Roamio OTA VOX)

    Note that "Pro" is simply a "Plus" with a 3TB HD; it is also CableCARD only.

    You should be looking for a 4-tuner Roamio basic (does OTA or CableCARD) or Roamio OTA.

    P.S. Any 6-tuner TiVo is CableCARD only.

    Thanks for the feedback guys. I originally started looking for just the OTA versions out there on ebay, but saw some Roamio's could do both without doing the full research above. I since went on Ebay and won another auction last night for just under $200 for a Roamio OTA, so saved myself almost $100 as opposed to Weaknees. Let me know if when you find anything out.

    Ok, they can't fix my Bolt, so I'll take it.

    Please PM me your paypal info.

    thanks.
