At least in the demoed software it's not an on the fly thing. Obviously when you're actively watching live TV from another room the ties up a tuner. But in the initial software it's a config change (not on the fly) to assign a tuner to a mini; so if it can stream live TV you lose a tuner even if it's not currently being used for that
Hopefully they get dynamic tuner allocation (so you only use the tuner while actively watching live tv) working before the retail release of the mini.
