    If it makes you feel any better Dan, mine has shown up but I won't be getting it until Santa arrives later next month.

    Santa was pretty thrilled that the order went through before TiVo ran out of stock.

    Not very good planning on TIVO's part to introduce the new Slide late in the year and be out of stock at the start of Holiday shopping.

    With the Slide only being offered on the TIVO site, it makes you wonder how few were actually produced.

    Being out of stock may even slow sales of the other units. I'm personally holding back an order on a couple minis, for the free shipping deal, until the remotes are back in stock.

    Ran into a strange issue this weekend - after pressing a button on the remote the amber light on the TiVo button just remained permanently lit. I had to pull out batteries to reset it. Hasn't happened again so far.

    I see its confirmed i can use dongle with basic roamio on premier. Now what i need to know is -
    Can premier use original slide bluetooth remote and Romeo RF remote at the same time?I have a premier in closet mirroring two rooms. I currently use one old slide for both rooms. I would like to use stock Romeo remote in one room /original slide in the other, if this is not possible can I at least add a second original slide so I have 2 bluetooth slide remotes working at the same time on my premier?

    This happens on my original Slide all the time (except it's the blue light).

    Finally got mine. Seems to work pretty good. My Harmony is on the fritz so good timing.

    According to my measurements it's 3/8" longer then the original slide.

    For those of us who missed the first wave of Slide availability when it became out of stock, it is now available.

    It no longer appears on the first accessories page. You have to click on remote controls at the top of the page.

    Just placed an order so I can confirm availability.

    It does for me- bottom left. Must be a display difference. All 46 accessories show on one page on my screen.

    I ordered one.

    I hope it's better than the standard Roamio remote. Lately it's been temporarily reverting to IR at random.

    For me the slide is head and shoulders better than the original. The original was spotty on the button response except for the number buttons. The slide has not skipped a beat for 2 weeks now.

    My classic Slide worked 100% fine for many months, up to the point it started having response problems. It is far too early to know if those issues are solved with the Pro Slide (although I suspect they probably are).

    Thanks for the update was waiting for it to be back in stock, I ordered one.

    My original slide is giving me response issues since I've been using it with my new roamio. It was working fine with my premiere, so when I get the slide pro all should be good

    Loving the roamio so far, going to six tunes from only two is awesome. Love being able to stream from my premiere box (now in the bedroom). Now debating replacing my THD in my media room with a mini. My biggest issue is I'll lose most of my recordings (movies from copy once channels).

    My BT slides seemed just as fast as the Slide Pro with RF. If the Pro is any faster it was only by the slimmest of margins. They both seem to instantly respond to a button press.

    According to my kitchen scale 192g for the old Slide and 199g for the new Slide Pro. (with batteries)
