    That is very unlikely. Clearance pricing isn't the same as just discount/normal pricing. My guess will be $60 too, but without much discount on Amazon or similar.

    Two years ago the slide was going for less than $40. So maybe the new one will drop in price quickly. I got my three slides after the price had dropped.

    But with the Roamio remote costing $30 I can't see the new Slide costing less than $60.

    I don't see list price being less than close to the $90 of the old slide remote. I didn't mind paying that much for the old remote; it's for something I use many times every day. I'm still not sure I'll get the new slide remote though. The Roamio remote is a much better base remote than other old remotes, but the lack of learning ability is a problem for one TV. I've got two old slide remotes to cover that one though.

    I had really hoped the learning function would have added a few more keys. Its the same as the previous learning remotes with only power, input, mute and vol+ -. I need to turn on and off 3 items and use power and input for two of them but while the power button can try to start more than one item, it very often misses one of them and trying again results in one on and the other turning off. Very low WAF. Need a few more buttons that are programmable...just one more would help a lot.

    I would be surprised to see the initial price under $89 which was the early price of the original Slide. They will keep the initial price to capture the early adopters, then drop the price.

    Wondering if they will introduce it early enough to get holiday shoppers. Wouldn't mind finding one in my stocking!!!! :)

    I noticed on Amazon that the old Slide is going for ~$160. :eek:
    I bet that price tanks when the new one is available. :p

    Still a far cry from the $40 or less it sold for two years ago.

    Does the original Slide remote work with a Roamio? Do you still have to use the BT dongle with it? We had to put ours in the drawer since we needed both USB ports on our HD and always had problems with a USB hub in the mix.... Would be nice to be able to use that again when we get a Roamio...

    Roamio is RF not BT, so it still needs the dongle to support the old slide.

    Does anyone remember the tivo beta site that had all the roamio info before it went live on the main tivo site?

    I'm in for 3 if it is $49 or less. Otherwise wait for the price drop.

    Doesn't say if it supports learning functions.

    The page says the remote will work with the mini with a dongle. What is the dongle and how do I order? I did see anything on the site called a dongle. When everyone stops giggling, hopefully there is an answer! ;)

    Looks like when you buy it they ask you if you are planning to use it with a Tivo Primer/Mini or Romeo. I assume the difference is weather or not the dongle is included. I'd like to know that for sure before ordering.
