Tivo Roamio RF Remote + USB Dongle

I have both a Roamio and a Mini. I'm using a Harmony remote for my Roamio and want to use the RF remote, that came with the Roamio, with my Mini. I purchased a USB dongle from user Davisadm.

Is there a quick guide someplace that explains how to easily pair my Mini and Roamio RF remote?

This should work: Premiere and TiVo Mini Instructions

Insert the RF dongle into a USB port on the back of the TiVo Mini. The light on the dongle flashes green to indicate that it is in pairing mode.

Press and hold the TiVo + Back buttons until the activity indicator on the remote turns red. The remote control will then send pairing requests for 30 seconds (indicated by the flashing amber activity indicator).

NOTE: RF functionality on Premiere Series DVRs and TiVo Mini requires software version 20.3.7.1a or greater.

If the TiVo RF remote has not been paired before, the first time you press any TiVo button it will pair itself.

Here is the TiVo support page, it was helpful when I set up my RF dongle on my Mini (also purchased from Davisadm).

Thanks for the replies. I'll give it a try later today.

BTW, how do I un-pair it from the Roamio? Or will pairing it to the USB dongle effectively take care of that?

The TiVo web sight tells you how to clear the RF remote, after that it will pair with the first RF TiVo you try.
