Yes, they're essentially either/or because both require annual subscriptions for duplicative services. However, they're also both aimed at recording
rather than timeshifting even though they can be coaxed to perform the latter, so given your inclination toward the latter, AIUI, neither is ideal and there's probably a better set-top-box solution out there for you. In particular, you wouldn't need any subscriptions. The only such systems that I have personal experience with are the DViCo TViX boxes and they're now long out of business, but I think there's a forum here with information on the others.
