    Can someone give me the Readers Digest version of this issue?

    I have a brand new TiVo Slide Pro that I have never cracked open. I got it about a year or so ago as part of a customer retention "bonus" and just never took the time to open it up.

    I currently have a TiVo Roamio Pro and a TiVo Roamio OTA (both have not been upgraded to Hydra yet).

    Is my TiVo Slide Pro remote compatible with both of my Roamios? What about when I upgrade to Hydra?

    Should I be contacting TiVo to get my TiVo Slide Pro replaced?

    Thanks all!

    Your Slide Pro should be fine, this issue only affected the first gen Slides with the blue tooth dongle.

    Ah...got it... Thanks for the summary... Saved me a ton of time trying to translate whether this was impacting my situation or not...

    Should you need a dongle in a mini for the keyboard on Slide Pro Remote to function? I bought 2 for my kids a while ago and they are just telling me now that the keyboard has never worked.

    Unless it's a version 2 Tivo Mini (TCD A93 000), you'll need an RF dongle.
