    True, but the Vox remote has a hell of a time with my voice/accent, and going from my iPhone home screen to the Tivo keyboard (open Tivo, wait for it to load, go to Settings, pick the right Tivo, go back out, open the keyboard) takes quite a bit more time than sliding a remote open.

    They are used for other things for example wish lists to make a keyword optional or a negative

    I hope this is available for purchase on the website soon by itself as an accessory. My vox remote has been dropped too many times and is about shot.

    When did they start adding the big SKIP button?

    When they made the alphabet buttons smaller. Small thumbs too. Some MSO remotes don't have the Skip button, they have On Demand.

    The Directional buttons and the Play/Pause/FF/RW buttons are still in wrong place for where your thumb naturally rests when holding the remote. They need to switch them. You use navigation buttons more than the play pause. Every other remote has Direction/Select button right where you thumb naturally rests except Tivo. So they have not gotten it right yet.

    Also 50.00 for a remote? So Tivo Edge Cable owners are now into the whole setup for 450.00? Insane.

    Nothing like having a big fat Netflix button to accidentally press and pull you out of your show.

    Right there with the Skip button too.

    Nothing like having a nice big Skip button so you can easily hit it instead of looking for a tiny D button by the Skip button and hitting that by accident.

    I just press channel up, it's easier to find than little D buttons.

    Lol done that, it can be so sensitive they simply lightly tossing the remote onto my bed presses it.

    I understand this only works on roamio with a USB dongle. Is the one for the vox remote sufficient?

    I actually use a Bolt remote that lacks skip and Netflix buttons, but my TCL tv remote has Netflix, Sling, Hulu and Vudu buttons lurking below the Play/pause button. I wonder if they get some kickback for putting those annoying buttons on there?

    Yes I actually asked this exact question on Amazon and they replied to me it’s the same dongle the Vox one came with

    Got one from amazon yesterday and it’s going back tomorrow. Will not pair no matter what I try (searched and tried all the codes/clearing methods). Tried on my existing mini Vox and also on a brand new out of the box mini vox.....nothing. I’ve paired many remotes in the past with no problems - this one is impossible.
