Question is there a mini limit when connected to 4-tuner Premiere as host?

I currently have a mini that is connected to a 4-tuner Premiere as its host. All works good. I like the speeds and interface of the mini so might consider some more to replace several Series 3s and 2-tuner premieres.

I know the minis now have dynamic tuning, but is there still maybe a limit on how many minis can be associated with a 4-tuner Premiere? Wasn't sure if this older technology has some limitations compared to the newer Roamios.

I believe you can have as many Minis as you want (up to the tivo account's 10 device limit). The limitation on the 4-tuner boxes is 3 simultaneous live TV streams max, since the host will keep one for itself.

The Premiere units have a max of 3 network streams period, so even if you're just playing recordings you'll only ever be able to use 3 Minis simultaneously. The Roamio units have no such limit, so if you need more then 3 Minis you should consider upgrading to a Romaio as well.
