From the same place they have always been - the remote control setup screens.
Which are where? I didn't know a TiVo had remote control setup screens.
Instructions are on the TiVo site. One of the FAQs I think and as others said, under Settings.
I want to use my new Roamio with my Harmony 880. I also will have my old Quad Elite Premiere in the same room which is already set to IR code #1. Will using the old method as described here
change the Roamio to IR code #2 so I don't have conflicts with my Quad Elite?
and if so, do I first have to change it from RF to IR as described in post #3 in this thread?
Under "Settings", as innocentfreak said.
I have a Denon 887 and the Glo remote that came with my Elite can definitely turn the Denon on/off by pressing the "TV Pwr" button. I haven't attempted to setup the Roamio remote to do this yet though.
With my current Tivo, we have 'his' and 'her' remotes to control the same Tivo, so being able to support up to ten Roamio RF remotes is great, however how does one purchase a second Roamio RF remote?
Not finding it under accessories on the Tivo website.
YES - and along the his and hers home happiness lines can another flavor Tivo remote work? Like a Premiere or Glo extra remote from Weakknees? Those of course would just be IR but still work with the official Roamio RF remote on a single Roamio unit?
I was looking for the RF remote, too and couldn't find them.
Yes, you can use a Premiere or Glo remote.
I am using a Harmony 900 with mine.
Aren't Premiere and Glo remotes both IR remotes? If I want to use RF mode, it doesn't sound to me like those options will work.
It will work with the IR remotes as well as the RF remotes at the same time.
you go to settings on the Tivo setup screen and look for remote setup- I think, thats what I did.
I didn't go to any menu. The RF remote worked fine, and my Harmony remote and also my S4/S3/S2 remotes worked fine with the Roamio Pro too. I didn't need to set anything for them both to work properly.
This was the case with my original Roamio Pro as well as the replacement.
I picked up a Premiere remote to go with my Roamio remote (and maintain marriage bliss). I definitely like the Roamio remote better. More compact mainly. The button layout is a little confusing between the two but we are coming off 13 years of Sony Series 1 remote so there are many new things to learn.
I'll probably buy another Roamio remote when somebody starts selling them. The RF is handy and the more compact design fits my wife's hand better. Both of them were easy to set up to control the tv.
I just ordered a Roamio remote from Tivo.com. It's in the Shop Products, Accessories page on the main screen:
Interestingly, Tivo support told me that they were only available with new units.
Glad to see that Tivo is now offering a Roamio remote.
I am pretty sure that wasn't there last Sunday when i ordered the premiere remote.
Thanks for the heads up!
I didn't see it either.
Anyone with one in IR mode know if it will work with a Mini?
I would like a remote with single layout for the whole house.
You are right, it wasn't there then. I saw it on Tue.
I just tried it and it works fine. Ordering two now, the guide button in different places has gotten me more than once.
