    I'm surprised the Roamio RF/IR remote is being sold at the same price as the other IR remotes TiVo sells. I figured they would charge more for it.

    I think he means something like a new slide type remote.

    Hmm pretty much faced with same problem, Premiere and Roamio in the same room, programmed the Premiere remote with a different remote address, but the Roamio remote doesn't seem to allow you to change the ir remote address and for whatever reason it randomly sends ir commands rather then rf so it affects the Premiere because it uses remote address 0 on ir. If I change the Roamio remote to ir mode and then do the tivo+pause combo to program the remote it doesn't work. Other then use two Premiere remotes, any other suggestions?

    I'm having no issues with the Roamio remote affecting my two tuner Premiere in the same room. I don't use the remote very often, but when i do, the Premiere never responds to it. The only thing i did with the Roamio remote was enter the code so it would work with my Denon receiver. Maybe you need to start from scratch and put the Roamio remote back in RF mode?

    It's definitely in RF mode. It just likes to randomly send one or two commands via IR which happens to be at remote code 0 which the Premiere responds to. I called TiVo about it and the tech guy said it shouldn't be dropping out of RF mode like that and so to look for interference and or low batteries. Replaced the batteries and it still happens. Haven't figured out what may be interfering yet as there is no cordless phone, cell phone, router, or such near by to cause interference at such close range between the remote and Roamio. I had suggested that they should of put the ability of the IR mode to be programmed to a different remote code for the IR, but he kind of blew that off as it "shouldn't be dropping out of RF mode" .. thats all well and good, but it does. So I have had to (unfortunately) resort to programming the Premiere remote for each TiVo when I want to access it and just use the IR until I can figure it out. Not sure it's worth the cost in shipping to have TiVo replace the remote.

    The remote droping out of RF mode is a know problem. It's not the remote but the Box itself. Tivo is working on a software fix for this.

    Also to reprogram the remote to a different address you need to switch to IR mode. Program the address, and switch back the RF mode.

    That would definitely be nice if it can be fixed via an update to the box as it would solve the problem.

    Thats what I thought too, you can't program a different remote address code when in IR mode. If you go into IR mode and then press tivo+pause it does not go into program mode. Thats one reason I had called TiVo to see if the buttons to do the program mode had changed.

    +1, although it's status changed from "Received" to "Processing Order" and the option to cancel is gone. Maybe soon, I hope.

    I have a replacement remote coming - and yes, it did change to Order Processing.

    The CSR did tell me they didn't have any in stock and it would be a few days before it they shipped.

    How did you get a Roamio replacement remote? They are telling me flat out "no" right now. My Thread: http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?t=509994

    Oh, and forgot to ask about this too.

    My Roamio gives "unknown" under system info screen for RF remote battery level using stock Roamio remote. This the same for everyone else? I'm having remote issues at the moment.

    It was the same for me with the included Roamio remote. When I connected the USB adapter for my Slide remote then it started showing the percentage. Of course that percentage is for the slide remote though and not the Roamio remote.
