Thinking of cutting the cord and going with OTA + Roku, but still want a similar TV/DVR experience to DirecTV (grid guide, pausing and rewinding live TV, and of course intuitive DVR funcitonality.)

I am comparing used Tivo options (Premiere and up with lifetime service) to the new Channel Master DVR+. Anyone have any thoughts on that, or experience with both? Pros and cons?

Not too concerned about on-board storage - presuming the Tivos can also be expanded by simply adding an external drive. I will be connecting direct to ethernet.

Recording 2 HD programs at once is a must (I think the CM does this) - it looks like not all the Tivo models do that?

Spending 700+ dollars for new Tivos with lifetime was of no interest to me.
