Issue using both HDMI and Component

I'm upgrading my main tivo from a Premiere XL to a Roamio Pro. The below was not an issue with the Premiere, but is an issue with the Roamio Pro.

Here is my setup:
* Tivo -> TV via Component cables
* Tivo -> Xbox One -> Denon receiver -> TV via HDMI cables for all connections

This allows me the simple "TV only" solution without surround sound, or the "Xbox + receiver + TV" path for surround, and extra Xbox features. Plus, I'm out of HDMI inputs on my Denon.

But: While this worked as desired with the Premiere, the Roamio gives me an "HDMI connection not permitted" error over the Component outputs whenever the HDMI Xbox path isn't powered on.

Are there any settings that might help?
Would using an HDMI splitter, which is always powered on, help?

Alternatively, I could always leave the Xbox on, but I'd rather not.

Yes, that's a good workaround that works fine - I used that method for a while with my Roamio Pro to feed TV via HDMI and Slingbox via component. (Now I use a dedicated Mini for the Slingbox).

Roamio Pro, Elite, Premiere
Cox - Motorola CableCards & TAs
Slingbox 350 via TiVo Mini & TiVo Stream for remote viewing

The xbox one does not have hdmi passthrough so to watch tv you must always have the xbox one console turned on, so the tivo isnt finding an hdmi connection.
