Roamio remote?

Can you buy the same remote that comes with the roamio, for use with the mini?

I really think the redesigned layout is much improved.

I'm curious about this as well. The layout is so much better than the Mini remote IMO.

I'm surprised to hear folks preferring the Roamio remote, I find it's nowhere near as nice IMO to the older ones, it's the first remote in years to NOT have a defined bottom edge, so when you pick it up blindly you have to look to see which end is up, Premier remotes didn't have this problem thanks to the grooves on the bottom.

yep, it works fine in IR mode. The USB RF dongle with the new Slider Pro remote can also enable RF on the Mini for either remote. Works great.
