tuners available question

Setup is a Roamio pro and a mini.
Last night the roamio was recording 5 things at the same time. I went to the mini and was unable to watch live tv. - No tuners available.

Question: Does the roamio always reserve 1 tuner? So, only 5 tuners are available to the mini? Or was this a problem on my end?

The Roamio is using five tuners for the recordings AND a tuner for the channel you left it on live. Thus no tuners available for the Mini. A work around is to change the live channel on the Roamio to a channel that is recording. On my XL4 when I turn it off I usually remember to turn it to a channel that will be recording so as to minimize the tuners it is utilizing.

This is a good trick, I'll have to try it. Ran into this issue last night.

Question: Can one affect the tuner selection to a recording channel on the roamio/premier with one of the apps?
