    What are the differences between TiVoGlo remotes models C00210 & C00212?

    Both are available on Amazon, but the 210 is about $13 more, which seems odd since I assume 212 is newer.

    I found a review where someone said the 212 "feels cheaper" and had some "button changes", but the writer did not go into more detail.

    And will either work equally well with a Series 3?

    Thanks,
    joelk

    Edit: Never mind, I found the close-up images on WeaKnees.

    Both work fine with a series 3, but the C00212 has the A B C D yellow blue red green buttons that add some functionality to the premiere. Also the C00210 takes 4 aaa batteries while the C00212 uses 2 aa batteries

    C00212 also has the 1-2 DVR switch which can be a big plus for multiple DVR owners.

    The one with the A-B-C-D buttons lacks the 1-2 switch. I have one of each. :)

    Do they feel the same to you. OP stated he read a review where the 212 felt cheaper.

    I don't think they're significantly different. I'll compare the two tonight.

    Here are a couple of Amazon photos showing the physical differences between the two models (buttons and the switch) in the meantime:

    I have both, I agree with the review and the 212 feeling cheaper, I also don't like the plastic'y buttons on the 212 vs the rubber on the older one.
    But then I have 2 Tivo's in the same room, I'm all over the 1-2 switch

    I wish they would come out with a remote that had ABCD buttons and a 1-2 switch. :sigh:

    I think they feel a little bit different, but close enough that I sometimes mistake which remote I'm using.. I'm comparing the OLED S3 remote with the one with the Premiere 4. (Even though the S3 remote has a 1/2 switch, I'm currently using two separate remotes.. The 1/2 switch is being a bit flaky, and I used to use one of the positions of the switch for a different Tivo.. just haven't taken the few seconds to reprogram it -- plus since I'm not switching between them as much as I used to, I don't mind juggling remotes.)

    One issue with the NEW remote (the one with A B C D buttons) is that the direction pad is different and has a different 'rocker' feel. Somehow I seem to hit DOWN after RIGHT once in a while.

    There is deinitely a difference in the feel between both types of remotes I have. The newer one doesn't feel as solid. But they both work fine without issues.

    What is live span on batteries compared to each other?

    Can you use rechargeable batteries without having to recharge at say 40% life?

    Battery life seems to be driven mostly by whether the glow feature is activated. But my C00212 has pretty good battery life with the glowlight on.

    I don't think the 210 can have the glo feature, off those 4 aaa can go low real fast.

    You can use rechargeable batteries. I use the eneloop rechargeable batteries in all my IR remotes. I've have tried them with the Slide before but I did need to charge them every few months since there were some reception issues when the batteries got below a certain charge.. So my slide remotes all have Lithium batteries. Even eleven months later it's still showing a 100% battery level.

    There's a keypad sequence that turns the feature on and off. When activeated the light automatically comes on in dim ambient light when you press any button and stays on for a few seconds.

    I get about a year+ out of 4 AAA batteries in the 1-2 button Glo, but I have the lighting off.

    the premiere remote (aka 212) glows whiteish/blue while my s3 glow remote glows orange. I like the s3 remote better. Feels better in the hand, but it may be because its been used more and the keys rubber is worn just enough that its grippier. Unfortunately, my 210 is starting to not register the down arrow key on the selector so it may need to be replaced.
