No... Only 4 tuner Premiers, or any model Roamio can host/pair with/support a Mini.
Once you've set up your Mini, you can stream shows from ANY Premier or Roamio in your home.... just like any other series 4 or 5 tivo, scroll to the bottom of your Now Playing list, pick the other unit, and hit play on any show. I do it all the time, streaming shows from my 2 tuner premier.
If the unit that has the show on it is a series 3 or older, you have to MRV (copy) the show to a series 4 or 5 unit, and then you can MRS (stream) it to the Mini. And, of course, this will only work if the copy bit is set right on that show to allow copying.
