    Does anyone know if the Mini LUX is Downgradeable to TE3? If yes, which remote do I need to use to work with the LUX?

    Do you mean Mini VOX? If so, the Mini VOX will load the software to match its host DVR, whether TE3 or TE4.

    No, I meant the Mini LUX. It's the new version of the VOX with a different remote.

    Seconding Joe - I haven't heard of it yet. I'm willing to bet it's just a normal A95 Mini Vox but shipped with a Lux remote instead of the old Vox one.

    In which case, it'll downgrade to TE3 just fine if your host is on TE3, but the Lux remote will not work in Bluetooth (RF) mode - only IR mode, so you'll need to put the Mini somewhere where it can be seen by the remote.

    Mine RF pair just fine while running TE3. You just can't use the voice feature unless you upgrade to TE4.

    Huh?

    Who are you asking? You’re the one who started the thread and had info on the yet-unreleased device.

    Maybe there's just something I'm doing wrong, since you're the second person to tell me that. I've got a Lux remote and an A95 mini, and even with two Global Resets in a row, attempting to pair with the Mini just flashes the amber light for two minutes until it gives up.

    Upgraded to Hydra and it paired within 15 seconds on the first attempt.

    Hi Chris,

    I had thought that the Mini LUX had already shipped. I then called my rep and found out that it had not.
