    One of my minis died ordered a mini lux from tivo recieved it neither i or tivo get get rf to work my base unit is a roamio on old firmware not hydra...tivo told me in order to get rf to work on the mini lux's included remote i would have to upgrade to hydra? Does this make sense? I dont care about the voice stuff and know that wont work but kind of stinks to be forced to upgrade..

    Many would rather learn to live w/ IR control than upgrade to TE4/Hydra.

    A mini Vox will pair with its supplied voice remote using RF without you needing to upgrade to TE4.
    The only time TE4 is required is if you want to use the voice functions.

    When you received the mini and it's remote they should be paired already.

    Same as OP, I have a new Mini Lux on TE3 that will not pair with remote in RF mode. I tried all the usual steps for some time and still nothing. My Mini Vox on TE3 paired to its remote in RF with some effort.

    You've tried the global reset of the RF remote? How to Program a New TiVo Remote - Tips and Troubleshooting
    I'm pretty sure the mini Vox and mini lux are the same hardware and in the past when you moved a mini vox back to TE3 you would lose the remote pairing and needed a global reset to re-pair
