That's nonsense, and it's amazing that a TiVo rep would say something so silly. You just have to have the remote in IR mode when you change the Roamio. Go to the system info screen on the Roamio (where it's receptive to remote code changes). Put the Roamio remote into IR-only mode (or just use an older IR-only remote temporarily). While aiming away from the TiVo(s), press and hold the TiVo+Pause buttons until the LED flashes, then press the remote code you want, which sets the remote. Then aim it at the Roamio and press the down arrow until you see the remote code listed, which should now match what you set the (IR) remote to use. Then get out of that screen so you don't change it again accidentally. Again, both the Roamio and its remote can be set to use various remote codes, but the Roamio can be set only by an IR signal.
