    I'd like to cur the cord, but keep my Tivo.

    Can my Tivo Roamio Series 5 schedule recordings of over the air broadcasts (terrestrial) using an antenna? (without an cable subscriptions)

    Or do I need to buy a Roamio OTA device?

    Just the 4 tuner models (Basic, and OTA) can do OTA, the 6 tuner models is cable only. You did not state which model you have.

    Just run Guided Setup and select Antenna. Nothing is lost and you will probably have a lineup with 2x the channels you can receive.
