    Anyone know if the newer Vox remotes are pairable over bluetooth (without a dongle) to android devices?

    The VOX remotes use BLE? (Bluetooth Low Energy) That's why you need a Bluetooth dongle to use them with Roamio's.

    I had read somewhere the new vox supported some kind of bluetooth as well. In addition, I had already ordered one (since received) and I am happy to report: it paired with the shield as 'TiVo_S6V_Remote' without dongle -> enough of the 'normal' buttons work to make it functional. This was not the case with the non-vox rf remote that came with my bolt - it wouldn't pair as expected.

    I wonder if having the dongle would make more buttons work? The voice button would be useful on the shield.

    I doubt that would make any difference.
