Thanks!! I'm glad I went ahead and ordered more from TiVo.
Wouldn't you want it out in stores before the end of the holiday shopping season?
Don said - 'The old Slide was BT, the new one is not.'
oh, what's the advantage? should one be more reliable than the other?
You can pair more than one RF Remote to your Roamio.
Go to Settings > Remote > Remote Control Setup > Part 5: Remote Control Pairing
and follow the instructions.
The Slide Pro remote has the same RF setup as the Roamio remote:
The new one uses a new RF spec specifically designed for remote controls. It's the same technology used in the new Roamio remote. I think the biggest advantage is that it's simpler then BT and does not require the same license fee.
Any way to get just the dongle?
I want one for the Mini, to use with the Roamio remote!
Got a shipping notice for my Slide Pro this morning. :up:
No, sorry, it only works on Premiere (Series4), Mini, and Roamio (Series5) running software 126.96.36.199a or later.
Before I order the Slide just to get the dongle, do you think that the dongle will ever be available separately?
Lovin the Roamio by the way. Awesome box.
It just occured to me that since Tivo is now selling these for the Premiere's and many people will be getting them next week, the full roll-out of the Fall Update (188.8.131.52a) to all Premieres must be happening any day now. Otherwise, those with Premiere's not already upgraded via priority list will have a nice $50 paper weight until the full roll-out happens.
Shhhhh... you are thinking too much...
My tivo upgraded last night and I wasn't on the priority list. So the rollout may even be in process now.
I thought the question was, can one remote control 2 boxes?
Or maybe the question should be, why isn't the manual online, so we'd have less questions.
Probably because the number of customers likely to use the feature is too small to be a concern. Still, I see where you're coming from and it'd be handy.
I'm trying to follow how having 2 identical remotes controlling the same box is useful... and I just keep imagining a couple, each with a remote in hand, battling for tv supremacy.
"I said House Hunters!"
I don't think it can. The current Roamio remote doesn't seem to use a remote code when paired in RF mode. I just ran a test and you can change the remote code on the RF remote and it will still continue to control the TiVo it's paired to. I guess you could flop the pairing back and forth, but I don't think that's quite as simple to do.
I didn't see anything there that stated the ability to have more than one remote paired to a single Tivo. I did see where you can pair one, but it doesn't say whether or not that drops any previous pairing. Is there something that says that, or has anyone actually done it? RF-paired more than one remote to a single Roamio?
Me and my wife both have our own Harmony remotes. Have for many years. We manage just fine. In fact we fought more before over who got to control the remote.
I can try that when I get my Slide Pro.
I just called to order 2 of them and asked for free shipping. She spoke with manager which granted me free shipping. Its only 8.54 but who cares.
