    Does this work with live TV, or only with recorded content, or content that's currently being recorded? I was watching (not recording) tv on the Mini - I paused it, and went to my Roamio and tried to continue the show from there, but it said the tuner was in use by the Mini, and wouldn't let me select it. Am I doing it all wrong?

    You can't share a tuner between the Mini and the main unit. You have to hit the TiVo button to release the tuner on the Mini and relinquish it back to the Roamio. And even then I'm not sure it'll retain your pause point.

    Also if you do this in the other direction (i.e. Roamio to Mini) there is no guarantee you'll even be allocated the right tuner on the Mini. You definitely wont if the tuner is in the foreground on the Roamio.

    If you need to switch back and forth like this the best option is to hit the record button, then pause, then go to the other room. If you start playing the recording on the Roamio it should pick up from the pause point.

    The tuner won't be paused but once the Mini releases the tuner it will still be on the same channel and you can view it on the Roamio.
