I used Tivo for a couple of years but gave it up when I moved and couldn't get OTA signals. I went without TV and streamed on wifi and my Roku. Now I'm picking up a cable deal and thinking I'd rather buy a Tivo with lifetime and pay for a cheap cablecard than have to pay for a cable box every month. (This will be with RCN. Hope it works. With Service Electric, never got the M card to work despite three service calls and countless hours on my end.) Suggestions are nice but I won't use them a ton. I do care about picture quality but don't have a 4K TV -- my plasma tv will work now. I feel like I'm entering a conversation and missed so much... what are the tradeoffs between just getting a Premiere with lifetime on eBay, versus upgrading to a Bolt? I really want a device that can get both cable and OTA, even if not at the same time.
