    I am thinking of getting a Tivo Stream 4k and putting it on a TV that already has a Mini (the old v1 Mini). Is there any chance of using one remote (I assume this one) to control both the 4k and the Mini (not at the same time of course)?

    This thread reminds me...the TS4K remote sucks hard and I keep meaning to try pairing the Mi Box remote.

    Personally, I love the layout and feel and size of the remote

    No Play/Pause button is the main thing that kills it for me. Not everything works with just the ok button. Lack of ffwd/rew also kind of sucks too. Skip and ffwd are different and need dedicated buttons. Arrows don't always work for ffwd, and neither does a long press of Skip. So for me, the TS4K remote leaves a lot to be desired. I'd take a Fire stick remote any day.

    I initially thought the single d pad would also be an issue. I am happy with how well it works. No more hitting the wrong d pad by accident as with the old remote.

    Unfortunately, the perfect remote for the TS4K is these three together...and still doesn't control the volume on my receiver.

    I looked up how to re-pair a FireTV remote (basically just puts it in Bluetooth pairing mode), went to the Bluetooth section in settings on the TS4K and paired it.

    Do I need to disconnect the fire tv remote from the firetv device first?

    I can't stand Roku, but their (latest?) remote - which has volume control on the side - is easily my favorite of all my devices. It's BT and IR. I'd be thrilled if an Android TV remote were configured like this, with the 4 advertising/paid "channel" buttons something that could be programmed to launch whatever apps you want.

    Thanks, I will try this tonight. Do the play/pause rewind functions work?

    Above remote should also be able to control the TS4K, theoretically, since it can control the Nvidia Shield. So the OP could control both his TS4K and Mini with one remote. A Harmony hub based remote would also work.
