    Hello, I have a Roamio Pro and 4 Mini's on order. Due next week. I forgot to check if you can watch premium content (HBO, Showtime) etc. on the Mini's.

    I have 4 independent TiVo's now and I know that you can't transfer shows like Boardwalk Empire between the boxes.

    Just wondering... Mike :confused:

    I watch HBO and Showtime on my Mini live and saved recordings without issues.

    Older units only supported MRV (Multi-room viewing) where the program was copied over to the other box.This would obey any copy restrictions on shows. Theres no drive in the mini to xfer to anyhow.

    Just like between Premiers + Roamios, you watch shows on the Mini via MRS stream, where there are no restrictions on viewing.

    Inside your home you can stream any show, regardless of copy limits, to a Mini or an iPad/iPhone using your new setup. Out side your home you'll only be able to stream unprotected channels to your iPad/iPhone.

    One exception where streaming in home doesn't work is for Amazon downloads. Those are restricted to be viewed only on the device they were downloaded to.
