    ? I don't think the Roamio remote emits IR except for TV controls when it is in RF mode...

    So should I assume my remote is defective? When doing No.4 I never get a lit LED, only when I've released one or both of the buttons do I get a blink of the LED.

    Weird... Also, it seems no matter what address I set the Roamio to it always seems to find it's way back to "0".

    I can't help but think that I'm doing something incorrectly, but at this point I have no idea what that might be.

    Can I set me Roamio to ignore the Tivo HD IR remote? Currently I have one under the other and the HD remote keeps screwing around with my Roamio. Using a card in front of the Roamio blocks the IR signal but I would rather disable the IR sensor altogether.

    Assuming you actually assigned a remote code to the TiVo HD and the remote, the easiest way would be to temporarily assign a different remote code to the HD remote, use it to navigate to the system info page of the Roamio, exit, then set the HD remote back to it's previous code. Make sure that the HD is not on the system info page prior to starting this process.

    If the HD and remote haven't been set with a code, it is still possible, with just a couple more steps.

    Title asks it, do the (non-slide) remotes that come with the Roamio Pro have the ability to be taught IR commands?

    I'd like to teach it to change the TV Input command to toggle through the inputs on my Denon AVR-X3000 receiver. Which is a bit problematic as the Denon remote doesn't come with an input toggle, but has discrete buttons for each.

    This leads to the question of whether or not a numeric code can be used to put that function on the Roamio remote's TV input?

    Anyway, is it capable of learning IR or not?

    Yes the regular remote that comes with the Roamio does both IR and RF. Yes it can learn ir codes to control your tv and avr.

    It can't learn anything beyond the codes supplied with the remote. For example, I could program the power and volume on my Dynex TV with the included codes, but the input button would not work. I used the slide pro remote, which does have the ability to learn commands from other remotes.

    I just bought a Pro and was trying to set the remote to turn on the tv and receiver using the green button. Remotes for my previous units would work to do this, sending out two signals I guess.

    I just went through an online chat with a Tivo rep who said that the Roamio remote wouldn't power more then the tv. Does anyone know a hack or do I have to buy the new slide remote?

    Thanks

    Read this short thread to see if the soundbar solution can be adapted to work with your receiver: Power soundbar with regular remote?

    thanks for the reply. I tried doing that, but couldn't make it work. I'm running a Pioneer TV (0304) and an NAD receiver (1036 or 1055). The old remote works without a problem, but the roamio remote only turns the tv on and off and runs the volume on the receiver.

    I just ordered a Pro and plan on getting a mini which will be right next to it. I need the mini to provide the second picture when using picture and picture on my Sony tv. Currently I have a premiere and HD. When using P&P, one window has its input to hdmi of the premiere and the second window has its input to component of the HD. ( can't use 2 digital inputs at same time). I use the HD remote with the 1-2 switch so I can easily control both from one remote.

    So am I stuck to using the same old remote to do the same with a roamio and mini? Or buy a harmony? Does a harmony provide every button on a TiVo remote? Or do I go to having to have to 2 remotes sitting around? I assume the mini has to get set to ir code2. Do I need to do anything to the roamio like set it to ir code 1 so it never affects the mini?

    It sounds like I'm not the only one with multiple boxes in the same room! Why won't tivo give the equivalent of the 1-2 switch again!

    I used that remote many years ago. And while I use my Harmonies for many things, I now just use the TiVo RF Slide remotes and use one for each TiVo/ Mini instead of using IR with my Harmony. But as far as I know you can duplicate every button press of the regular TiVo remote with the Harmony.

    Thanks. I guess I would have to relearn button layouts on the harmony and buttons which are not labelled for all TiVo functions. I would like to avoid having 2 remotes out all the time plus I have TV remote out to switch between windows (to switch the sound to the window I want to hear).

    I will have a roamio and mini in the same room to use picture and picture. Could I setup the remote so that when its in RF mode it will control the roamio and when in IR mode, then it will control the mini? I would set up IR to use code 2 rather than 0. Not quite as convenient but may be an alternative to using my old remote with the 1-2 switch.

    Just found out from TIVO support that you cannot change the remote code on any Roamio. It will accept the signal from ANY Tivo remote. So, you can't use the Roamio in the same room where it could pick up the signal from any other Tivo remote.

    That's nonsense, and it's amazing that a TiVo rep would say something so silly. You just have to have the remote in IR mode when you change the Roamio. Go to the system info screen on the Roamio (where it's receptive to remote code changes). Put the Roamio remote into IR-only mode (or just use an older IR-only remote temporarily). While aiming away from the TiVo(s), press and hold the TiVo+Pause buttons until the LED flashes, then press the remote code you want, which sets the remote. Then aim it at the Roamio and press the down arrow until you see the remote code listed, which should now match what you set the (IR) remote to use. Then get out of that screen so you don't change it again accidentally. Again, both the Roamio and its remote can be set to use various remote codes, but the Roamio can be set only by an IR signal.
