    So the Roamio remote will work with my S3 but not my Premiere is that correct? Seems backwards to me. :confused:

    The Roamio remote is RF by default and will only work with the Roamio. However apparently there is some way to set it to IR mode in which case it should work with any TiVo. (Some said pressing TiVo + C set it to IR mode)

    Let us know how it's working out, any performance differences between the S3 remote and the Roamio while using it on the S3?

    I'm useing it on my Premiere and it works great. I'm keeping my slide remote on my roamio and useing my roamio remote on my premiere. I love the slide remote I like the wight and the fact thats it's a learning remote. Can't wait to see the next remote due out soon.

    And here is another RF question since IR can technically support unlimited remotes per Tivo.

    How many RF remotes can be used with one Roamio?

    I would like to leave one in the Master Bedroom and one in the Living Room so, don't have to play "where's the remote".

    The new slide remote will be a game changer just like the S5 :D

    Oh my. So aside from the RF feature, it's not really all that good compared to the Glo learning remote huh? I wonder if the remote finder feature works if the remote is in IR mode, or even how the remote finder works in general. Is there any battery life indication on the remote or on screen? I know the slide remote had a battery life meter in the System Info screen. Is anything there on the Roamio?

    How do you get back to RF mode? TiVo + C again?

    Nevermind, I found a user guide on the TiVo website. It's TiVo + D.

    Now if I could just "unpair" the Roamio from my Premiere IR remotes. Changing the remote codes doesn't work because Roamio seems to automatically change it's IR remote code to the same code as the last Tivo IR signal it detects.

    And not just when on the "System Information" screen? If so , that was an almighty stupid thing for TiVo to do.

    I wonder if the new TiVo remote has soft keys like the basic remote with the Premiere or hard keys like the glo remote with learning and backlighting...

    I think I have it squared away now. You have to make sure (1) the Roamio doesn't find it's way into it's system information screen while watching a Premiere and (2) when you purposely go to the Roamio system info screen make sure that no Tivo IR remote buttons get pushed. Otherwise your setup will get messed up.

    Looks so similar to this, even the mute and record buttons are side by side. [media]http://www.gearculture.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/tivo-slide-remote1.jpg[/media]

    That pic is the old slide remote. The new slide remote has a dial pad in the middle. Also the new remote has a moved the guide button and has a back button like the new roamio remote

    Oh I know, I was just saying how similar they both are with the slider closed. Here is what the new one looks like. [media]http://7554xysb4c4dxy7u.zippykid.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/tivo-roamio-slide-remote.jpg[/media]

    No, the original Slide remote was a game changer. The "new" Slide remote is exactly the same with just the nav pad moved. How is that revolutionary compared to the original Slide?

    The old slide was a game changer I agree never said it was not great. But it is discontinued and the new Slide will be IR and RF Right? And I hope will also be BT? also the buttons are moved on the new slide not just the NAV pad.

    I wonder if this new slide will use the same RF as the standard remote? Or if it'll be BT again and require a dongle?
