    Which VOX remote - I noticed there are two listed on the Tivo webstore site, one for Bolt, and one for Mini. Is the only difference that the version for Mini includes the Bluetooth dongle?

    Diana,

    Does RC9 fix the last channel button issue as well?

    Got RC9 and my A92 minis are now fully VOXed. Only thing I'm noticing is that since the update I'm getting a lot of spinning circles when I click on show folders or click play. I never experienced that before the update. I'm hoping it improves. It can take up to 20 seconds for a show to start playing. Feels like an eternity.

    I received RC9 and the bad news on my end is that it did nothing positive for my pairing issue on an A93 mini.

    Earlier in the week I decided to shuffle some remotes around to play with the voice feature on my Bolt instead of the Mini... It took several resets using the "CEC221C" routine to get the Bolt remote to pair to the Mini Vox. I think it was maybe the 6th attempt (with 2-3 minutes of use between attempts) for it to finally pair up in RF/BT mode.

    I also reset the Vox remote and the Bolt and that paired up instantly.

    So my thinking is that there is still something up with the Mini Vox software... and it's not the Vox remote firmware that is the issue. FWIW, the other TiVo was not running when I was pairing the remotes in either case -- I pulled the power to avoid interference...

    I've been out of town and just got home. My minis have RC9. On one of them I can pair it but as soon as it pairs I don't get any remote response. It flashes yellow on button press but nothing. I can manually change the remote to IR mode or use another IR remote and it's fine. I can unplug the dongle and it will switch to IR mode and work. As soon as I plug the dongle back in it connects and no response. On a different mini it pairs and if I remove the dongle it won't reconnect or re-pair until I reboot the mini.

    Any ideas??

    On my new Mini Vox I tried everything in this thread and couldn't get the remote to pair. What finally ended up working was goign around and unplugging the power from the Roamio's and 2nd gen Mini's that were in nearby rooms. Then it finally paired.

    On BOTH the Roamio and A93 Mini as well? No HYDRA, no VOX?

    Correct both for VOX and because the Mini and host have to be on the same UI.

    ok, thanks. Guess I won’t be buying a VOX remote then, as I like my live-guide, two-column view too much

    I haven't seen anyone with my exact issue but this could help somewhere. I had called support before without much help, but I emailed them the other day because i was getting concerned about being able to return the remote. They added me to the case and sent me a couple troubleshooting documents. One of the things I hadn't seen before was Clear, Enter, Clear, 221, Clear to clear any pairing. I did this and then re-paired and it's working.

    Looking forward to the update. When turning on the Mini it always defaults to channel 1 instead of the last channel viewed. I'm not the only one experiencing this and hope it is addressed as well.

    I don't call your outsourced support because it's awful.

    That issue was resolved for me by RC11. BTW: I don't work for TiVo, so it isn't my "outsourced support."
