I did. Just bought the old roamio hd off ebay and took the cable bracket from it and put it inside the ota and it worked perfect with comcast cable.

Refurb deal was great-got one for my daughter...$199+$99 (for 3TB drive) makes an awesome package. :-)

I'm a Tivo newb. I ordered one, but how much better is this than the old roamio you bought? Does the old one do OTA and not have a subscription service?

if you search for PCMT-134-02-L-D-RA-02-SL on ebay, i bought that one. i already have it and can verify it was easy to install into the tivo, but i have not installed a cablecard yet to verify it is working....FWIW

I never used the old one so I cant say. I just took the cable bracket out of it. The old roamio requires you to buy a subscription whereas the new one comes with one.

Not sure. I'm hoping they work with DirecTV Now in the near future. Then we can retire the Amazon stick.

Not sure I agree with this being the best no-fee OTA DVR. It's an awesome device, but the fact you have to buy satellite devices to watch your shows on other TV's stinks. Tablo has a 4 tuner box for less (though you do have to add your own hard drive), and it allows you to watch your recorded and live shows from any tv/device from an app on your Roku or Firestick.

Wish Tivo would go the app route Frown
