Stream app, does it borrow tuners?

It was suggested that we use the stream app with the roku stick instead of the xi box. I know the xi box uses a tuner from the DVR. We are heavy DVR users and would like to avoid that. So, if we use the stream app with a roku stick, wi it borrow a tuner from the DVR like the xi box does? Or would using the stream app/roku stick combo be a way to avoid borrowing tuners from the dvr?
Thanks

Yes, the Roku/streaming app doesn’t communicate with the physical DVR at all and doesn’t use a tuner
