5 year TivoHD guy, just purchased the XL4 with lifetime comes in Friday (got a pretty good deal too!) and bought the last Slider remote around (Fry's, $59.99 they still have some in other states like Texas and Georgia
BUT I'll tell you what I really want and you tell me if it's possible please
OK, I am also a long time Logitech Harmony guy, old school peanut style Harmony 680 & 620. One button turns everything on/off, does so much more too, completely 'smart' remote but I really like the look of the Slider and love that qwerty but I think I want to keep my harmony and explore other options for text input.
So it it possible to do voice searching through the tablet apps (my current android app) for TivoHD is pretty limited. Just acts like a remote. What i want is the ability to use the tablet or phone app to do text input onscreen? Somehow use voice searches or qwerty to the tivo premiere xl4? or is the tab app self contained in the app. It searches on the tab then if you find it, you send it to the tivo (much like online now)
I love the slider but giving up the extra Harmony functionality just for hte occasion text input seem silly.
Your thoughts are appreciated,
