The Kodi (formerly XBMC) solution is nice/flexible/free, but you kinda have stay on top of it sometimes to keep it all fluid (I have a Win 7 PC with WMC doing the recordings and then a Chromebox and Raspberry Pi for my frontends, along with Harmony Remotes). There are alot of moving parts, might be nice to try Roamio someday...
OK-- found an old rabbit ears antenna and a spare 15' cable. Mounted to an outside eave, and bring in KSBY, CW, KCOY, and KKFX rock solid, no issues. Still no KEYT,

Two things--

Tivo MLB app causes copyright error message upon switch to live TV. Power cycle is only "fix" atm.

Also,my model seems to have a CableCard port, but Tivo says it's not supported--however, over at TivoCommunity, there are rumors of a simple hardware hack/workaround, something I'm not interested in doing for multiple reasons.

ok, three things--Plex is supposed to be arriving in June. I don't have a huge media library, but it's something I could see value in.

TLDR--we're in. with all our other home entertainment options, paying for Dish is just cray-cray. One might well call our purchase of a Roamio OTA nuts as well, considering only four solid channels, but I think it'll pay for itself before the end of the year.
