    It better work on the Roamio without the Dongle otherwise I ordered the wrong one. But I also need the DOngle if/when I want to move it to a Mini.

    How do you get the free shipping? It's charging me $8.54 for shipping.

    When it was trying to charge me $8.93 for ground, it had a two-day for $13 and overnight for $29 I think. I really didn't look that hard though.

    I went ahead and ordered the Premiere one. Free shipping and only $3 tax. Cheaper then I expected too.

    I also ordered the Premiere one and hope it works on the Roamio without the dongle. Got free shipping and no tax. :)

    Can you order the Mini/Premiere version to get the dongle, use the Slide Pro with your Roamio, then use your old 'basic' Roamio remote with your Mini by attaching the dongle to the Mini??

    Anyone know the answer (or can check if they are calling in)?

    If so, I would consider purchasing one so that I have the same exact keypad on both for muscle memory. =)

    I bought one on faith that it'll do just that. We'll see in a couple days whether it works or not.

    I wonder if the Premiere/Mini one also has the remote finder feature?

    Sorry Dan,

    I did forget to ask that question. The rep said that he had all the specs/features in front of him, but I didn't think of asking.

    I have the same question as everyone else- why have two models if they are the same price and function? I want to use it with a Roamio, WITHOUT a dongle, but I want the dongle anyway so it could be used with other TiVo's if I want to. Need info!!!

    And the put in cart button is strange. It does nothing. And nothing. And nothing. Then I left the tab for several minutes. When I came back it was showing a cart with several hundred dollars worth of remotes in the cart!

    $8.54 shipping on the Roamio version and $3 VA tax. And yes, if I put a Premiere version (with dongle) in the cart, the shipping is free. Doesn't make any sense.

    Can this remote power on/off a tv and audio receiver at the same time? If not, then can it even power each on separately?

    it is a learning remote so maybe just depends on the make and model of audio receiver

    I would call them back and ask, but they are closed now. Of course everyone would order the Premiere/Mini remote, with the dongle. Especially if the shipping is free.

    Also the Remote finder is not important to me, but might be to some. Better off to wait and find out for sure. Too late for me though.

    Thanks, thinking of getting one since I like the Tivo remote. Anyone have a Harmony, but prefer this remote?
