    So what difference does it make what channels it comes back on? Does it affect anything important?

    I didn't see this but since the Roamio and Mini got the update, I can now switch tuners on the Mini and see what the Roamio has able to be rewound.

    Since I DVR Gotham and Sleepy Hollow, one of my tuners was on Fox. This morning I turn on the tv with the Mini and it's on another station. I switch to the local Fox to watch the morning news and it actually just switched to that tuner and I could rewind it back about an hour or so. Prior to the update it would just switch whatever random tuner it had to the channel.

    I was kind of shocked by this because I didn't notice anything saying this welcomed change happened.

    Wow good find if true! I'll have to mess with it too. So you just use the right arrow and go down to the circles to see what's on the host Roamio?

    I would guess the connected Roamio can't be in standby mode.

    I have seen this happen before the update. If the Roamio is tuned to a channel but not being actively watched or recorded it will use the tuner that is already on a channel you want. It doesn't happen often though. Could just be a pure luck if you are tuned to that channel allot.

    I just changed the channel to the local Fox from the channel it was on when I hit the Live TV button. Then noticed it was able to rewind. I did find the channel I was on and the local Fox were not the active ones on the Roamio when I turned it on. So they were both channels not actively being watched if that TV with the Roamio was on.

    I just checked it again. And got the same results.

    So to pause in one room and watch in another is now possible for live tv without having to hit record.

    If watching a show on tuner 1 (active tuner) and you want to continue watching in other room on Mini do the following:

    Change to a different tuner by doing the right arrow and down arrow so the show you want to continue in another room is on a different tuner than the Roamio TV is on.

    Go to the other room and hit the live TV button on the Mini.

    Then just change to the channel number of the show you were watching on the Roamio.

    Mini will have whatever amount of time you can rewind to. It will act like that is the tuner you picked from the Roamio to watch on the Mini. No more random and if you change the channel not have full rewind capacity from the Roamio.

    Oh and I have a Roamio Plus but don't see why this won't work with the Basic. But this only worked since I got the new update on both the Roamio and Mini.

    I've tried before both were updated and it would basically lock the tuner and change the channel. Then when I released it back to the Roamio by not watching and go to the TiVo Central, I'd then have two tuners on the same channel on the Roamio.

    Now when I do it and it uses that unused tuner then I still only have one tuner on that channel as well. But again the only time it doesn't work for me now is if the channel being changed to is the same channel the active viewing tuner on the Roamio is that same channel.

    Is there a shortcut to resume viewing a recorded video after going to the menu while it's in progress? Right now, I have to through multiple menus to "Resume" from "My Shows" list.

    This worked before your update. At least it works for me and I haven't received the update yet.

    Hmmmm, I'm pretty sure I recall trying to do this exact thing on my minis not long ago. I hit right arrow then arrow down but no circles showing other tuners. Are you sure?

    If the show is still in the preview window, just hit the "Zoom" button. Shows on the local box should stay in the window as you browse the menus.

    However, if you have more than one Tivo and you are streaming a show from a different box, you'll typically lose it in the preview window when you enter enter the menus and have to re-navigate back to it to continue watching it.

    If I go to other menus, when I come back out the program will continue playing or will still be paused. This is even if I go into the old menus that are still SD that have no preview window.

    Not a big deal for me because I never watch live TV in the mini, but I tried this just now on my updated Mini and I also don't see the other tuners.

    I never saw this on the Mini, before or after the update, just tested this last night, I can't see any other channels as I can on the Roamio itself.

    It didn't for me. I did it before both got the update and the Mini would just change whatever tuner it was first using to the channel. Then when I release it back to the Roamio, it would have two tuners on the same channel.

    It doesn't show the other tuners on the Mini itself. What I am speaking of is knowing what channel you want to watch on the Mini in the other room that you started watching on the Roamio.

    Example:

    You are watching USA Network on the Roamio in the living room. You want to finish watching the show in the bedroom with the Mini. You change the Roamio to another tuner showing HBO. You go to the Mini and it autopicks a tuner currently set to Showtime. You change the channel to USA Network and it just starts using that tuner instead.

    Before I did that and it would change the tuner on Showtime thus no rewind because it would be a new selection on that tuner. Then releasing the tuner back to the Roamio and it would have two tuners on USA Network. One would be the tuner originally on USA Network and now a second that was formerly on Showtime.

    EDIT: And I did this switching back and forth between tuners not currently used by Roamio as "currently viewing". My local Fox is 804 and GSN is 742. Roamio had those as two tuners not as "currently using tuner". I was switching on the Mini back and forth watching two shows but rewinding back through commercials on the Mini on both channels. I did type in the numbers and not use the channel guide to navigate and pressing select. I don't know if it makes a difference as I just knew what the channel numbers I needed.
