On Demand Limitation Question

Last night my wife was watching something on Comcast's On Demand on the Roamio. When I tried to access a show On Demand on our mini it froze both shows. Is there a limitation to the On Demand feature where only one device can access it at a time? If so, I'm curious if Comcast imposes the same restriction on their own boxes? And why is there this limit? Any workaround?

Hi,
I have seen similar posts to yours. With Tivo you can only use one On Demand channel at a time with Comcast and I am pretty sure there are not any work arounds. I don't know if Comcast has the same restrictions on their boxes or not.

Since on demand is a two way communication with the cable company, it would be inherently limited to one on demand session per cable card/TA or cable box. If you had another roamio with cable card/TA then you would be able to access another on demand session, just like you would with multiple cable boxes.
