    I was looking at this one, but wanted to wait and see if others are using it, and how well its working.

    I just pulled the trigger in this. It'll be here tomorrow. I'll let you all know how I make out with it.

    I have an Logitech Ultimate remote with an hub. It controls the TiVo Stream via Bluetooth (setup device an and Android Shield).

    I disagree, the tivo remote is one of the nicest remotes that have come with a media streaming device in some time.

    If function of it is your issue, consider using ButtonMapper to optimize it to your needs. Worked wonders for me!

    Again, use button mapper to adjust it to your needs. GL

    Thanks. But button mapper can only re-purpose buttons that physically exist. If I need 10 buttons but the remote only has 5, I can remap all day long and still end up with 5 functions. In any case, I don't have a TS4K and never will unless the next version of the remote has more physical buttons, among other things.

    exactly , even the AirTv Mini 4k has play/pause, rrw, fwd buttons, and its just the right size and weight too.

    The Tivo Mini remote is a failure.

    Have you actually tried it? BM will allow you to assign 3 different functions in 1 button with single, double and long press. Not to mention, there are 10 # you could use as well.

    It's not just for making buttons work that already exist, I have a button for screenshots, ever seen that on a stream box remote?

    I get it could have come with a playbutton, but lemonade out of lemons and all..

    Have you had any luck mapping the “Live” button? It’s not working for me

    No, I was not able to.. same with the Netflix button. But the guide and tivo buttons are fair game

    Yeah I mapped the guide button to open reel good app with one tap, JustWatch with two taps

    TiVo button opens fuboTV with a tap, two taps opens YouTube tv loving it so far

    That's good to know. I appreciate the additional info. No, I've never tried it with this particular remote as I don't have one. But I do have several JP1 universal remotes where I can put 5 functions on a single button - short press, long press, double press, shifted and double shifted. I've also used FLIRC for remapping on other devices. It's great to have that kind of flexibility. But nothing beats a dedicated, single function button. It's a big reason I don't use Harmony remotes and one of the reasons I won't get a TS4K. Yes, I could put rew/play/ffwd on 4/5/6 if I wanted. But I don't want to spend money on a device where that's necessary when I already have other devices with the correct functionality. If they had designed the remote correctly to begin with, we wouldn't have to jump through hoops and compromise functionality.
