I probably did not articulate that well. I like the DVR+. I like it as an untethered OTA DVR. It does everything well in that regard. I have always regarded it as a runner up to the TiVo except...

I don't think this will kill off the DVR+. I expect CM to be a very strong competitor once they supplement OTA with Linear OTA. This may well push them on Netflix, Plex, and other streaming apps. ...

Not sure you would get much for the DVR+ and you might regret the sale if they get into a feature war with now price competitive TiVo.

Not really. In Maine, most stations are vhf. For me, that is Icons and Heroes and WMTW's subchannel. In New Hampshire, WENH (PBS) and WMUR (ABC) are vhf broadcasters.

I'd be interested to see a TVFool report for your location. Also curious what is between your antenna and the horizon (through peak vs through roofing).

It's pretty minimal. If I am going to have problems, they will be with WBIN, WMTW, WBPX, WLVI, or WFXT in that order.

Aim a Y10-7-13 (or Y5-7-13 if you are tight for space) between WMUR and WENH and you will get both well. Your TVPRAMP1R has a separate vhf in, so no need to buy a joiner or use an AB switch. You'll...
