Amazon TiVo deal on the Roamio OTA with lifetime service is once again in stock. Available for $299.99. Prime shipping eligible. Not much to say about this that hasn't been said in other threads. I bought mine because I missed out last time.

Q: Does this work with Cable?
A: NO - this is OTA (Over the Air) only. Yes, some have said it can be hacked with an old cable card unit from an old Tivo. Google it.

Q: Does this have Amazon Video App / Netflix / Hulu Plus / Plex?
A: Yes

These things are great. I picked up the normal Roamio near Christmas for $400 with the lifetime, but the only reason I did that was because the OTA with lifetime had been out of stock for so long. Having never had a TiVo, it really is a revolutionary experience. Not so much because of the DVR/Guide, although they are nice. I really enjoy the integration of Netlix, Amazon, etc. It's great to be able to search multiple streaming providers from the comfort of your couch.

The OTA version needs the Tivo Stream to stream to iOS or Android. Anyone has a deal on the Tivo Stream? Thanks.

I heard the magical skip all commercials button on the Bolt was making its way to the Roamio models. Can anyone confirm if it has yet and maybe link to the evidence. if not, any word when it is comming?
thanks in advance.

According the posts at tivocommunity, skipmode on roamio is rolled out in two markets - Chicago and San Francisco. More may be coming but it's just speculation IIRC.

It would be nice if they made skipmode skip automatically instead of having you press a button to do it. I'm in Chicago and it is a nice feature.

I've seen it once on my OTA device, but then never again weirdly. Perhaps still testing.

Can this OTA model take cable card?

Tivo.com is confusing -

Input Sources
Roamio: Digital Cable (may require CableCARD)
*OR*
Digital Antenna (ATSC) *OR*
Verizon FiOS (requires CableCARD)
(no satellite input; cannot accept digital cable AND off-air)

Roamio OTA: Digital Antenna ONLY

No. There's another version that will take cable cards, but this Roamio will work with OTA antenna broadcasts and online streaming only. Also, no access to WatchESPN which is a deal breaker for many, myself included. Otherwise, this is hands down the most user-friendly OTA DVR on the market, bar none. Many others feel like a project / kit whereas the Roamio has the finished-commercial product slickness that you expect from TiVo.

Also note that this product has been discontinued. They're pushing everyone towards the more expensive Bolt now.

I'm contemplating one of these. How long will it be though before 4k will be the standard for OTA broadcasts? Are there bandwidth limitations like cable/satellite or is that a non-issue for OTA?
