Can a TiVo Roamio VOX OTA TCD 846000V run te3?
I believe so. Its the Bolt OTA that can't.
Yep. But the Vox part won't work and any other TE4-only features.
So just roll it back and lose recordings?
Yup, and VOX.
My clue is that it doesn't have a VOX remote:
That makes no sense cause it is a VOX and appears to have a VOX remote... so can it be rolled back to TE3 or NOT?
So much for trusting TiVo's documentation.
What was incorrect about TiVo’s documentation? The link you provided shows that the Vox remote comes with the Roamio OTA Vox model.
The doc says:
"TiVo VOX Remote with USB dongle and extension cable"
I didn't see the dongle. I have a basic Roamio on TE4 and it needs the dongle to use a VOX remote. Must be that V at the end of the model number. Perhaps it will not work with a standard peanut Roamio remote in RF mode with TE3. Please let us know.
So, back to the original question...
Can anyone tell me, FOR SURE, if a TiVo Roamio VOX OTA TCD 846000V that has VOX and a VOX remote be rolled back to TE3?
I understand all recordings will be lost and the VOX won't work, BUT I don't want to buy this is I'm stuck with TE4.
With respect, don't answer if you THINK it can, but if you KNOW it can I'd appreciate the reply.
Don't want Hydra or VOX... thanks.
Questions already answered.
I think Joe's comments about Vox remotes that came out of left field has caused the OP to lose confidence in all the answers provided so far. You and I have done all we can do. Like the OP, I don't understand what the remote has to do with his question.
Exactly... I knew that rolling back and Roamio lost the recordings and TE4 features. I don't want TE4 features or VOX.
I asked what I thought was a simple yes or no question and then Joe's "remote" post threw me for a loop so I asked again being more specific hoping to get a YES or NO answer.
The VOX remote does not have much to do with Hydra and it will work even if you reverted to TE3 (v20), but if that VOX button is pressed, it might initiate the up-convert to Hydra.
Now that's scary to know. If I buy this Roamio OTA VOX it will be rolled back to TE3 and I'll try the VOX button and report back.
