comcast on demand doesn't work

on demand doesn't work when it's already being used. So only 1 box can use ondemand?

It uses a tuner, which is very different than netflix, amazon, ect. That is certainly more limiting, but have not heard that only one stream can happen at a time...

I don't think you can watch OD from a Mini and the connected Roamio at the same time, you can correct me if I am wrong.

I was previously unaware of this restriction but have confirmed it with my Premiere Elite and Mini.

When I start the second stream it interrupts the first one, pausing it.

Aren't traditional on-demand channels similar to SDV channels in that a physical channel is allocated to carry the signal as needed? If so, it probably makes sense that the cable company wouldn't want a single user to be able to grab several of them, although if another user (on the same node?) already happened to be watching the second (or subsequent) one requested it really shouldn't be a problem.

If you have say three TiVos that can get OD then you can watch OD in three places, but only one OD program per Mini and connected Tivo.
