    How do you tell the difference just by looking at them?

    I thought all Glo remotes were learning remotes, but tivo.com seems to indicate otherwise.

    I thought all Glo remotes were learning remotes as well?

    "The TiVo Slide Pro, Glo Premium, and Slide remotes are learning remotes, which means they can learn certain functions from other remote control devices without requiring a device code."

    which I took to mean that there were Glo remotes and Glo Premium remotes produced.

    Further assisting me in this apparent misconception,

    Press and hold the TiVo and Select buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds. When the red or amber activity light remains lit, the remote is in "learning mode."

    and on the three of these remotes I wound up with because they came along with used TiVos I acquired, on only one of them does holding down both of those buttons lead to the red light coming on and staying lit.

    Maybe I just wasn't "im-press-ive" enough on the first two. :D
