Minis not releasing after 4 hours?

    I have a Roamio Pro and 3 Minis. Twice now I've noticed that 3 of the Roamio's tuners are in use by the Minis even though the Minis have not been used since yesterday. I can walk around the house and release them by hitting the Tivo button, but aren't they supposed to release by themselves after 4 hours??

    By the way, this seems to only happen on occasionÂ….most of the time they seem to release just fine.

    I've noticed that my Mini on occasion will be live when I turn on the TV after many hours being idle . Happens very infrequently. I doubt that a remote in another room is keeping it active as it would have to travel upstairs and around two doorways.
