Allocate 2 Tuners from Roamio to Mini?

One feature I really like is allowing live tv to buffer between tuners, and toggle back and forth between them, thus, being able to FF through commercials on either tuner. I just got the Roamio Plus and a Mini. I know the Mini grabs one tuner from the Roamio, allowing me to watch live tv in another room, but because the Mini is only grabbing one tuner, I can't toggle... Is there a way to get the mini to grab 2 of the 6 tuners from my Roamio?

You lose that capability with a Mini.

Thanks. I figured as much, but was hoping there might be a hidden trick...

If there is some hidden way I doing it I have not read on the forum about anyone enabling it.

A Mini can only allocate one tuner. You could however start a recording on both channels and switch back and forth between them. Not as convenient, but if you sort My Shows by date it wouldn't be that hard to flop back and forth.
