    Is there a way to purchase a Lux remote?

    Only with a new unit at this time, it will eventually show up as an accessory, don't worry.

    It's only with the OTA Edge, correct? I didn't receive one with my cable Edge.

    As of now (or, better said, when I checked a little bit ago), yep.

    Technically yes, buy an OTA, then sell the OTA with the Cable Edge Remote.

    Seriously though, the Lux remote is new and maybe TiVo doesn't have enough manufacturing capability yet, but in time...

    Bring back the Slide Pro remote, dangnabbit, updated through the Edge/TE4/VOX platforms and with a row of user-customizable learning buttons!!! Why TiVo refuses to make money is beyond me. :confused:

    (OK, I'll now shut up.)

    Because they moved overseas and money goes a lot farther there.

    no mention of needing a dongle for Roamio's looks like Roamio Pro or plus or bolt/ edge needed will not work on Roamio Basic

    Not even on weaknees site, but sold by weaknees

    I ordered through Amazon and received my 2 Lux remotes today. They came from Weaknees.

    The 4-tuner Roamios use the same remotes as the Plus/Pro, so I don't know why there would be any difference.

    Had a weird issue with one of my Lux remotes (the one connected to my Edge; have another Lux remote for a Vox Mini).

    Previously paired it with the TiVo Edge without difficulty. Was working fine for 48 hours. Wife texted me this morning that it would control TV, but would not control TiVo. Got home to find it in IR mode. Couldn't switch modes with instructions provided on TiVo's pairing page (which later found were incorrect -- basically said TiVo+TV Power switches modes, but a Google search said it was TiVo+green D buttons).

    Finally had to do a factory reset (TiVo+TV Power, thumbs down three times, enter) and then repair the remote.

    @TiVo_Ted Have you guys seen any issues with the Lux remotes like this? Not sure if it was a fluke, somehow it got into IR mode by someone accidentally doing something to the remote, or if there is an issue with the remote.

    Same thing happened again. This time I'm unable to pair it. Wouldn't control the TV, was in IR mode, wouldn't pair again with the Edge after I reset the remote. Finally gave up on it.

    @TiVo_Ted Do you want the remote back for analysis?
