    Assuming you want the mini to unlock the Roamio's tuner it was using, yes hit the TiVo button on the mini's remote and turn of the TV connected to the mini.

    I get the impression a few seconds to change channels on a mini is normal. It takes a second or two also on my Roamio.

    The TiVo needs several options:
    1. I want to be able to set TiVo Mini timeout option for much more than 90 minutes, PERIOD. There are times when I want my house to sound lived in while I'm away for more than 90 minutes. My wife, family, and many friends agree. Based on comments in this forum, many people seem to agree.
    2. I want a feature the gives me the option to manually force disconnect a remote device such as a TiVo Mini from using a tuner.
    3. I want a feature the gives me the option to automatically force disconnect a remote device such as a TiVo Mini from using a tuner in order to satisfy a high priority todo recording.
    4. At least for TVs connected via HDMI, the TiVo Mini should be able to detect whether the TV is on or not. I've noticed that while my laptop is connected to my TV using a HDMI cable, the laptop detects whether the TV is on or not. Therefore, the TiVo Mini should be able to do the same.

    The timeout on a Mini is four hours. For other suggestions:http://advisors.tivo.com/wix/5/p2272893819.aspx

    I wish the others worked also.

    I thought recordings on the host bump minis already.

    It would be nice to relieve mini locked tuners from another TiVo so you don't have to go to the other unit. Currently I use my iPhone app to do it.
