Can two people watch same recording (one on TiVo, one on TiVo Mini) at same time, but out of sync?

    Say I start watching a recording at 7pm on the Mini, and the person upstairs wants to watch the same recording starting at 7:20 - does this work? Do they have to watch it starting where I currently am in the program, or can they start it over, while I continue to watch?

    Yes, they can definitely watch it out of sync; playback is completely independent.

    The resume option you might find when initiating playback can be handy for moving between rooms and changing the playback device, but watching in-sync is difficult to manage, at best, given the independent playback.

    Thank you!! So do people lose their place? Like, if I 'Start Over' a recording that someone has paused upstairs, have they lost their place? If they 'Resume' do they resume from the spot I am at, or they were at?
