I thought I read something here in another msg that the Premiere uses blue tooth frequencies ? Or at least the Tivo slide remote uses blue tooth wireless frequencies? I was just curious about the idea that there is a Tivo remote that operates on the bluetooth frequency.
Thanks for the info!
Ok, my original post was a little mixed up/outdated. The RF remote that comes with a dongle for Premieres is the Tivo Slide Pro, not just a basic RF Tivo Roamio remote. They are currently Out of Stock on the website and are now listed as two distinct products: Tivo Slide Pro-Roamio and Tivo Slide Pro-Premiere, no drop down box anymore. And yes, the Tivo Slide Pro works with a Roamio with no need for the dongle.
The references you're seeing to a Bluetooth remote refer to the old model of the Tivo Slide remote. It used a similar dongle, but the dongle was a receiver for Bluetooth instead of RF. That one was discontinued, maybe a year ago by now.
