If you are having trouble pairing, why wouldn't you try it?
Now the hard part to get the programmers to figure out why this is happening...
Hello there, sorry to be the bearer of bad news but I followed every step of the procedure above carefully with the VOX Remote that came with my MINI VOX and it did not work for me. When I pressed the up arrow the remote did not go into pairing mode and so I held down the Tivo + BACK key as suggested and the remote did then go into pairing mode flashing slow yellow but after around 20 seconds the flashing stopped as opposed to blinking quickly first as I understand should happen. When I press buttons on the remote it continues to flash red instead of yellow as before.
I realize it was not suggested for TSN A92 folks, but I tried those Post #29 instructions, just in case. No go.
I also have two A92 TiVo minis that will not pair with VOX remote/dongle. My ROAMIO Pro is working perfectly with VOX remote/voice commands. Should I call customer service to create a ticket or just wait patiently? I bought my Vox remotes/dongles from Amazon. I don't want to get stuck with a remote that doesn't work.
There is an update coming (to RC9) that fixes the VOX pairing with an A92 mini. Some of us tested RC9 over the weekend and it does fix the pairing issue.
The following bugs are fixed in RC9:
V66 errors when going to Live TV on a Mini
VOX remote will not pair with an A92 series Mini
Occasional empty guides on DVRs and Minis
Stuttering after trick play, 30 sec skip or commercial skip
'Title not available' in the info bar
Lost live TV buffer when recording starts
There may be more, but those are the issues I saw and which were fixed.
If you PM me your TSN's (DVR & MINI's), I can get you RC9 soon. Full release probably won't be until next week.
@TiVo_Ted Sending you a PM now. I'm having an issue where when I start live TV on a Mini Vox (only 2 connected so far), the live TV stutters initially. No audio for about 10 seconds with maybe 5-10 frame changes during that period. Then live TV works. If I change channels, this doesn't occur again. It's only with the initial stream of live TV.
@TiVo_Ted -- sent TSN's earlier this morning... Will also likely have 3 more Mini-Vox TSNs to send tomorrow when I receive them. Thank you.
After providing the TSN for my MINI VOX to @TiVo_Ted earlier this afternoon the unit downloaded 21.R7.2.RC8-USH-11-A95 and after a reboot I was able to pair it in RF mode by holding down Tivo + BACK key.
Thanks @TiVo_Ted !!!
Glad to be of service and thanks for the shout-out, Ted!
I know you said that you thought the device-side reset of the remote pairing isn't necessary, but that's the difference between the original "remote control reset" procedure that you posted and the combined "remote control + remote receiver in the device reset" that I posted. Something appears to be askew on the device side on the Bolt/Bolt Vox/Mini Vox devices that ends up getting reset when you issue that command.
Downloaded 21.R7.2.RC8-A92-6-A92 and rebooted. Still won't pair up with my A92 series mini when I push TiVo and back button. I cleared the remote and started fresh but still no luck. Am I missing something?

You need RC9 to fix the A92 voice remote problem. I submitted your TSN’s so you should have it soon.

I was thinking that might be the culprit. Thanks again, Ted.

I just read this on the VOX sale page:
“and TiVo Mini when combined with Bluetooth® dongle (included)”
Any idea if that’s a true statement, i.e. the new, VOX remote works with an old Mini?
It's true. The VOX remote works with the original generation mini, but to get the voice-activated capability and non-line-of-sight you need both the TiVo Bluetooth dongle AND your mini must be running at least RC9. If either condition is not met, the remote will work only as an IR remote and no VOX.
I have RC9 and have successfully paired a Vox remote with an A92 (Original) Mini using the BT dongle.
And you know that you have to update to Hydra/gen 4 UI on your TiVo and Min to use it? (if you have not already)
Is there a trick to get voice working on the new Mini Voxs? Just got 3 new Mini Voxs... They've been updated to RC9.. All 3 do not work with voice -- attempting to do so throws the microphone on the screen and after a few seconds I get a D402 error - Voice not currently available.
All 3 are paired and working fully in RF mode -- at least I get yellow flashes for everything.
I pretty much did all of this today (my wife and daughter are visiting my sister-in-law, who has terminal cancer; I had to work until an hour ago). Unfortunately, despite several days of trying AND having RC9 installed, I cannot get my remote to pair with my Mini Vox in my daughter's playroom. The TSN is:
I've tried all above steps, taking out the battery and reinstalled it, rebooting the TiVo, clearing paired remotes, etc. etc. etc. No luck.
