Tivo Premier and Slingbox Pro-HD - Slingbox remote problem

I got the Tivo Premier and love it - I thought is would be great to watch it everywhere with a slingbox. I set the slingbox up and the video and audio are excellent on the component input on the sling viewer but I can't use the remote (so if it is on the channel I want that's great) - I can't change channels or access the Tivo to get recorded shows
It would be nice to actually control the Tivo.
I understand I will have to get the "non web based" sling viewer and download a binary code into a folder. I have two Tivos so the one controlling the premier Tivo is set at remote 1. Is there a slingbox Tivo Premier remote setting 1 binary download out there?

Just use the TiVo Series 3 remotes, which are available with different addresses. The colored ABCD buttons are missing, but everything else works.

You CAN use the "non web based" SlingPlayer and download the custom remotes, but its a PITA.

Not sure why Sling Media hasn't added TiVo Premiere remotes. We've been asking for them for almost two years.

Unreal. It seems Sling Media has the remote codes for every device except for the ones you actually need.

Big Grin hallelujah!

Looks like this has been resolved. Just picked out the remote code for Tivo Premiere Elite and not only does it work but the ABCD buttons work too!

I got the SlingBox 350 at launch back in October. I never had any problem controlling my TiVos with it.

The Series 4 remotes do not appear to have versions available for more than one tivo, ie tivo2, tivo3 etc like the older series remotes that Slingbox has. How to use the slingbox with more than one Tivo Premiere?
