    Can a TiVo Mini be set up to ONLY watch recorded shows from the host TiVo (or other TiVo's in the house)? In one of our rooms for the kids, I was thinking of adding a Mini, but don't want to tie up an additional tuner for live TV in that particular room. Thanks!

    No. Previously in the older software you would have specified 0-2 tuners on the host as being set aside. With the recent update, it's dynamic, in that it grabs a tuner as needed but otherwise all tuners on the host are available to the host. You cannot specifically block a mini from attempting to grab a tuner from the host dvr at this time.
