    So I finally got my Tivo bolt remote for my MINI to be on RF/Bluetooth so it stops interfering with the series 3 I have in the room...
    Now the problem is the Bolt Remote on Orange light mode doesn't control the TV which is obviously IR and not RF. I am guessing the remote doesn't jump to IR mode for the TV Volume/Power/Input? It's just not working now that it's RF. Or do I have to try and again put in the TV code since I switched to paired RF mode?

    You guessed wrong. The remote does send out IR codes for the TV/AVR, but the LED remains amber. Just go to the Remote, Cable Card & Devices entry, Select Remote Control Setup, Then select the item you want to program. The instructions are on the screen. I think with a Mini the LED may blink twice for IR commands.

    Ha...I reprogrammed it tonight and it works. I guess it forgets the TV programming when you pair it with the tivo...
