    Purchase an AM21 off-air tuner thru DirecTV.com for $50 and you will be good to go.

    AM21 connects to the THR22's USB port and integrates dual off-air tuners with your Tivo's satellite tuners.

    I'm guessing this would be in full HD quality. (1080 / 720)

    No. The AM21 can only work with the DVR. If you drop your subscription, then your DVR is essentially a boat anchor, including the AM21.
