    The Vox doesn't come with the USB Bluetooth dongle does it? I was hoping to use my vox remote That comes with my new Vox for my mini, and Continue to use my slide remote on my new Vox because I need the learning remote to control the volume on my vizio sound bar Since I haven't been able to find a code that works to control the sound bar with non learning Tivo remotes. The vizio sound bar is where my Vox will be.
    Is there any chance the original slide remote Bluetooth Dongal will work with for the Vox remote on my old mini? I may still have an old slide dongle.

    Actually I'm pretty sure the original slide not what they call now the pro slide was a Bluetooth dongle that came with that. This is years before Tivo rf remotes came out

    I have an extra brand new Rf Dongal if Someone wants to trade it with me for a Bluetooth dongle. Guess I'll call TVO in the morning and see what they charge me for one

    RF remote began with the Roamio.
    I currently use 2 RF remotes on a single Roamio, no dongle. One is a slide pro.

    The remote light blinks in yellow while its in RF but red while in IR.
    Does yours blink the same?

    Correct.

    I don't believe it will. The VOX Remote is using a different Bluetooth spec, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE).

    The VOX remote switched to Bluetooth (BLE as krkaufman indicated).

    Is there a generic BLE dongle that'll work with or Vox remotes?
