Premiere xl4 or Roamio for mini which is better?

I have a Roamio and a Premiere xl4 along with 2 minis. Is there any downside to using the Premiere as the tuner for the minis instead of the Roamio? I would like to use the Premiere so I can free up the tuners on the Roamio. Is Netflix affected at all (slower)?

I have one Mini mated to my Roamio Pro and one to my Premiere 4. I don't see any difference in performance.

Roamio Pro (MoCA)
Premiere 4 (MoCA) w/2TB WD20EURS upgrade
2 Minis (MoCA/Ethernet)

I use my Elite for the Mini, simply so I can have all six tuners free on the Pro. I use the Pro as my primary TiVo, and having all six tuners free makes recording decisions mostly concern-free.

I use the Elite as a glorified Mini. While I do record a few shows on it, it's in the bedroom, and I use it to stream or XFR recordings from the Pro.

That's a good problem to have. My whole system is an XL4 with Minis, and I've very happy with it. You should be just fine. 10 tuners. Holy ****!
