    I have a 4 tuner roamio and I was using a slide pro remote with it which seems to be wearing out. I see Amazon has the vox remotes with the bluetooth dongle for $10 more than the the vox remote without bluetooth dongle. I don't need voice on the roamio, but I'm not sure if a vox remote without the bluetooth dongle will work on a basic roamio?

    In IR mode it will, but if you want RF for any TiVo commands you're going to need the dongle. It doesn't just use bluetooth for vox commands and use different rf frequency for the rest. A remote will only have one rf frequency on board, in this case its Bluetooth. Which the roamio doesn't communicate with, without the dongle.
