    I grasp the difference in the size of the hard drive.

    However, I am not sure if there are any other differences between the Pro and the Plus regarding software, hardware, firmware. etc.,

    While looking for a used Roamio with lifetime service I came upon the following ad on eBay which referred to an upgraded Plus...from a 1 TB to a 3 TB hard drive, a "Pro."

    TiVo Roamio Plus, LIFETIME SERVICE, HDD Upgraded to 3 TB, Slide Pro remote. 851342000193 | eBay

    Any advice, suggestions etc., would be greatly appreciated.

    Imo, I would always get a box I could use with OTA.

    I would go for the upgraded one, see if they will give toy the original drive too. Love the slide pro remote.

    Roamio Plus is a 6-tuner, thus not OTA compatible.

    P.S. IIRC, the only difference between a Roamio Plus and Pro is the OEM hard drive capacity.

    Nitpick: other than size of hard drive, the other differences are the TiVo model number on the plate attached to the box (and displayed in "System Information) and the words "Plus" or "Pro" stamped on the box. An upgraged Plus is functionally identical to a Pro.
