Tivo Roamio OTA + Tivo Roamio Cable + Tivo Mini + Tivo Stream

I have a Tivo Roamio Pro, Tivo Premiere, and Tivo Mini currently running in my home.

I am able to stream from both the Tivo Roamio and Tivo Premiere to IOS devices in my home. I guess the Premiere is able to use the streaming capability built into the Roamio pro since I don't have a separate Tivo Stream for the Premiere.

I am interested in the possibility of adding a Tivo Roamio standard for OTA.
1) Can my Tivo Mini stream shows from both the pro and the OTA TiVo's?
2) Can I stream the OTA shows to my IOS devices without needing an additional TiVo Stream, like my TiVo premiere is able to do now?

Thanks in advance for your inputs.

You cannot transfer to a mini because there is no hard drive.

You can stream to it, and portables with the stream built-in to the plus/pro and from other TiVos by starting a transfer to the Roamio and start streaming it.

1) "Transfer" is a bad term for using the Mini, as evidenced by the previous post, but I'll assume you're wanting to watch shows on the Mini from either Tivo. The answer is Yes.

2) Yes. The Roamio Pro's stream chip will allow viewing a Roamio OTA's recordings on iOS just as you can already do with the Premiere.

Thanks for the replies!

I updated my post to say stream instead of transfer as was recommended.
