Will a Tivo remote my daughter bought work on our Tivo?
They usually do. There are a few exceptions. Toshiba (SDH-400) and Sony Tivo remotes do not play nice with regular Tivos.
Some of the buttons are in different places between different TiVo remote and some Tivos have extra buttons. Some have remotes that look nothing like the regular peanut shaped Tivo remote.
The one possible problem is if the codes are different. So if your Tivo is set to code 1 and the new remote is code 2, it won't work. But then you just have to re-code the remote. Chances are, though, that it is set to 0, which should control all Tivos (with the above exceptions noted).
