Question anyone connect two rf remotes to one mini?

Does anyone know if two roamio rf remotes can sync simultaneously to the same ver 1 mini using the same rf dongle?

Or..

Has anyone got x2 BT ver 1 Slide remotes to work on the same mini? If so did it take both usb Bluetooth dongles or were both able ro connect via Bluetooth using the same dongle?

I've already tried pairing simultaneously one rf and one Bluetooth remote unsuccessfully.

it works, I successfully paired 1 slide pro and 1 basic Romeo remote both silmultaniously to the same mini both using RF with the same TiVo dongle, nice. now to try it out on my series 4 premiere TiVo. I'm thinking if it worked on the mini it should also work on the premiere.

I assume you've gotten as far as pairing 1 RF remote already? After that I believe I pressed the dongle power button down for 5 seconds to get it in pairing mode, then hold the TiVo and back button on the second Romeo remote you're trying to pair with for a few seconds let go, now that remote is also paired. Worked for me first try and the first roamio remote remained paired. One funny thing that happened was not all the the buttons on the remote were working at first. Actually only the directional buttons were working but a quick mini reboot regained full remote functionality

When I pair the second remote the first one becomes unpaired. I'll keep trying. Perhaps it's a timing issue.

R u using a pro slide and a basic roamio as your x2 remote combo like me? don't imagine it would make a difference but you never know. I would suggest doing a global reset on your remotes as well as a last resort.

Here is global reset instructions :

It only works with the RF models. The BT remotes only support one per dongle.

After playing around with it for a while today, I got two remotes working in RF mode with a dongle. I just wanted to confirm that it works.
