    Hi,

    Downgraded my father's Tivos to TE3 on his request yesterday. The Bolt kept it's Lux remote paired, but the Mini lost it's pairing.

    I can't seem to get the Mini to re-pair, no matter what I do. Tried Tivo+Back, tried a global reset, unplugged the Mini and plugged it back in.

    The Mini sits at the pairing instruction screen, the remote will flash orange for about 1 minute on and off before it just stops and goes back to IR mode. Pressing a button initiates the pairing orange flash again, to no avail.

    Any advice/tips?

    Take care,
    Al.

    That confuses me a bit, since your post indicates "When using a Mini VOX in TE3 with a VOX remote and a TE3 host will pair in non-IR mode."

    I am using a Vox (well, a Lux) remote with my Mini VOX in TE3 connected to a TE3 host.

    To use a VOX remote with a Roamio running TE4 requires a dongle. The VOX remote uses BLE. Now you are more confused, right?

    Simply, the Mini VOX needs TE4 software to work with a VOX remote. It doesn't have the ability with TE3 software to work with a VOX remote in RF (BLE) mode.
