Advertisements So I've been having some problems with my TiVo Slide remote. I just read this thread and I seem to be having the same problem: I bought the remote, plugged the dongle into the back of my TiVo (HD XL), and everything worked perfectly. For a while. Then it started ignoring half of my button presses at random. So I used the extension cable to locate the dongle to the front of the box. I live in a college-area apartment complex, and I know there's a lot of wireless interference (although that wouldn't explain why it worked perfectly to begin with). But it didn't help. Still only about half of my button presses work, I almost always have to sit here and press the same button over and over for it to register. Occasionally every button press will work for 5-10 seconds at a time. My couch is only about 5-6 feet from the TiVo, but even if I hold the remote a foot away from the tivo (and dongle), the "reception" doesn't improve. The TiVo shows over 90% battery life, and I've tried changing them. I've tried restarting the tivo, removing and replacing the dongle, and re-pairing the remote. Now I'm extremely frustrated. It worked long enough for me to throw the box away, and now I just use my old TiVo Glow remote. My PS3 remote (which is also bluetooth) always works 100% fine, and always has - never misses a button press, and is also bluetooth. Anyone have a possible solution for this?
