    It is surely a waste of a machine that could do a lot more and I'll probably sell it rather than keep it, but I just want to confirm that if I boot up my lifetime Roamio Plus without a Cable Card, it'll work, I'll be able to watch anything previously reported, I'll be able to use it as a streaming device, and I'll be able to use my Mini as a streaming device too... Yes?

    Probably. When you pull the cable card, specify "install later" during guided setup to avoid continuous error messages.

    He could also do OTA search after attaching an an antenna and keeping fingers crossed. // Also, I think I have seen posts here where you can buy a CC to get local channels on ebay // Either route should allow to watch stuff already recorded and the few apps that Roams have

    There is no support for OTA/8VSB reception in Roamio Pluses.
