I don't think that exact scenario can happen, though a similar one can. As far as I know, there is no way for the second Mini to be watching a tuner that is recording anything. My understanding is Mini live-tv tuners can only be used for Mini live-tv, and that didn't change when they added DTA on the Roamio.
Your scenario still works, just the second user has to be viewing the Suggestion on the Roamio itself.
Edit: My statement above is wrong. Nobody on a Mini can be watching the Suggestion as live-tv, but of course they could have gone into the "My Shows" of the Roamio and select the recording of the Suggestion to view. Not likely, but could happen.
