Is there a product that will modulate ATSC into QAM?  


I'd like to purchase the Roamio Plus but it lacks OTA support.  Am I crazy to think I could upstream convert it into a format it understands?  and..... without costing $2k?


Something more consumer friendly along these lines http://www.markertek...ies/6275.xhtml ?

If you're looking for something that will broadband translate OTA to QAM, no. QAM takes video and audio as an input so you need a set of tuners to feed a rather expensive ($$$) modulator.

If you want OTA support, you MUST select a TiVo that features it.
