    Can I have OTA with a dongle? Other than the AM21?

    Is this a question about TiVo OTA or is it about Directv?

    Considering he responded to a thread on the THR22, I'd say its about both.

    AM21 works with any DIRECTV HD receiver to include the THR22 and R22.

    HR20 700 has a Built in OTA tuner.
    AM21 not needed.

    Do the Directv Tivo receivers use the same tv guide data as Directv receivers do? Basically could I get more ota sub channel listings if I had a Tivo THR with an AM21?

    And the THR22 still has the Scan feature in the software using the AM21, so you'd get any sub-channel within range.
