RF Remote

Hi,

When setting the remote address for my new Elite, I noticed that the remote address box in the system info page now reads (from memory) "IR address=x, RF address=0"

What's this RF address and what RF remote does this work with?

Thanks. KEnt

I believe that is for the TiVo Slide remote as it uses Bluetooth, an RF technology, to communicate with the TiVo.

If so, that's odd. Every bluetooth device uses a 4- or 6-digit code to pair two-way communications. A "device ID" would seem to not fit.

Tivo's implementation of the RF slide remote seems to support only one remote per Tivo (on a Tivo HD anyway). And it seems to work on the basis of pairing using a button on the receiver dongle. It will pair with any other slide remote likewise set for pairing mode.

I do wish they supported more than one RF remote per Tivo.
