    Setup is a Roamio pro with a mini in the bedroom. Question: If someone is watching live tv on the mini and turns off tv with mini still connected to live tv and leaves the room, what happens if the Roamio needs that tuner? Do I have to be concerned about the mini being connected to live tv?

    The Mini will timeout away from live TV to a screen saver after 90 minutes without using remote. Also if the host unit actually needs the tuner for a recording before timeout kicks in it will put up a prompt if it's OK to do so, and if there is no response from Mini side then default action is to use take the tuner to use for recording.
