    Do I need my IR repeater with the new Roamio??

    Will the new Roamio RF remote control my TV?

    Will it allow me to change the signal input on my TV?

    Yes, you can program the RF remote that comes with the Roamio to control the power and input of your TV. It's not a learning remote, but as long as your TV's code is in the remote's database you should be fine. It will use IR for the TV and RF for the Roamio so depending on where/how you use the IR repeater, you still might need it.

    IR repeater can be used with old remotes (i have mine setup that way, the ir receiver is just to the left of the tivo logo), but the new one doesn't need it in RF mode. I have it setup that way so any remote I grab will work, and I already had the repeater in place from the old tivo.

    Yes, it controls tv power/input/volume etc, using IR, not RF.

    The RF remote does both IR and RF.
