Where to find a replacement for Tivo Side's Bluetooth dongle.

I have a Tivo Slide but no TIVO Bluetooth dongle.
Is there a replacement part or a compatible Bluetooth dongle out there.
I tried the one that came with my Mini BT keyboard....no joy.

FYI I can connect the Silde to my laptop using the Mini BT keyboard's bluetooth dongle.

I'm guessing they don't work because you need to pair the devices together. I'd think you might be able to do that on a PC

1. Make sure the USB receiver is plugged into the USB port on the back of the TiVo DVR.

NOTE: To use the optional USB extension cable, plug the male end of the cable into a USB port on the DVR, plug the USB receiver into the female end, then place the USB receiver near the front of the DVR.

2. On the TiVo Slide remote, press and hold the TiVo button and the blue "B" button simultaneously. When the activity indicator light blinks blue, release the buttons.
3. On the USB receiver, press and hold the button until the LED starts blinking.
4. After a few seconds, the remote's activity light will blink rapidly 5 times and then go off if pairing is successful. If pairing is unsuccessful, repeat steps 2 and 3.

Are these instructions for the factory USB dongle, because the OP lost his original. He (and I) are looking for a solution to pair the TiVo remote with a generic Bluetooth USB receiver.

I have a USB Bluetooth dongle being shipped from China that might work, as I too have been trying to find a replacement too.

After searching the entire Web I finally found one that has the push button pairing button on it. I should get it it soon and I will post the results. It was very difficult to find one that had the push button on the dongle which is the key which is how it's paired, as long as it supports keyboard hid, it should work.

This it: http://www.buyincoins.com/item/13614.html

I didn't buy it from the above site but found another seller on eBay that offered it for $11 shipped.

Edit.... I'm concerned now, the seller changed the pictures to a different dongle, when bought it from the seller I found on eBay, it had the pic of the dongle shown in the link above. Now it's changed and has the same model but different looking dongle, this might not be good!
