SlidePro Remote dongle

Hi,

I see references to a dongle in conjunction with the SlidePro Remote. Can someone describe what the dongle does? I am hopeful that it will allow replaying RF commands to IR since my A/V receiver is behind an opaque cabinet door.

Thanks.

John

Roamio already does RF, so it should work from inside a cabinet.

The dongle is to use the remote on a non-Roamio box that does not have RF built in.

Thanks for the reply. So I guess there is no way to control an A/V receiver behind an opaque door with the TiVo remote then? I guess I have to stay with my Haromony 890.

Correct, the RF would only support the Roamio and not anything else.
