    We just got hooked up to 100MB fiber optic internet service provider. I would like to combine HD antenna channels with streaming channels (DirectTV Now via Apple TV) using a TiVo box. Is this possible using a Roamio Pro? Can the antenna feed through the Coax input and the fiber optic streaming via the Ethernet connection? Any help will be appreciated. Also any ideas on whether Apple TV can be used with a TiVo Roamio Pro? Thanks!

    Roamio Pro does not have OTA tuners so it's a no go.

    A Roamio Pro doesn't work with OTA (antenna) and no TiVo can stream from an Apple TV.

    Nor is an app available on any TiVo, even those capable of OTA reception, for any of the recently launched OTT TV services (Sling, Vue, DirecTV Now), let alone any deeper integration of the available content into the TiVo UI.

    So a big basket of no's.

    So the Roamio Pro Coax connection is only for Cable and not for Antenna? What about on the Roamio Basic?
    And no way to access DirectTV Now on a TiVo box, Roamio Basic or other? What about using a Bolt?

    Correct Roamio Pro is a cable only DVR. And correct again no way to access DirectTV Now with any TiVo period.

    Of the recent models, digital OTA reception is only possible with the 4-tuner Roamios (basic model or OTA) or the 4-tuner BOLT.

    Don't see how to answer without repeating the previous post: Roamio Pro, HD Antenna feed plus Streaming via Fiber Optic feed
