    Anyone have a usb dongle from the slide pro remote that you do not need? Looking to use my roamio rf remote with my premiere. Would you take $10 + shipping?

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    Those dongle are most likely bluetooth not RF, so the Roamio's remote will not work with it, but it will work under IR mode (Hold TiVo + C until red light blinks, to return to RF, Hold TiVo + D until yellow light blinks.)

    yes, I'm definitely not looking for the bluetooth one. I have one USB RF dongle that I am using with the slide pro on one mini right now, looking for another USB RF dongle to use with a premiere. Perhaps someone who was sent a slide pro recently for the software troubles will have an extra. Thanks

    You might try calling TiVo and ask for one, they have on some occasions sent them out for free esp if you bought a slide pro. Tell them you meant to order the Premiere version but made a mistske an d ordered the Roamio version. A few months ago I placed two orders at tivo.com and called to get them combinded to save on shipping, they couldnt do it very easily so they canceled one order which was a glow remote and sent it to me for free (this was right before they stopped selling the glow remote],

    The new Slide Pro uses the same RF standard as the new Roamio units. When you order one it asks you if the remote is for a Roamio or a Mini/Preimere. If you select the later they send you a little USB dongle. The same dongle can also be used to pair an original Roamio remote with a Mini/Premiere so it's definitely using the new RF standard and not BT.
