    My first generation Mini Paired fairly quickly. Only problem is a handful of buttons wouldn't work (most notably the Tivo button). Still getting the V66 error on Mini anyway so using it at all is still frustrating.

    You were able to pair a V.1 (A92) Mini? Voice works? You are the first person who has been able to pair the older Mini.

    Yes it did pair, but like I said, some buttons we non-responsive. So it didn't realy work.

    So maybe you are paired with IR and not Bluetooth via the dongle?

    Nope. Its definitely paired with the Bluetooth. Don't get to excited though, like I said some buttons don't work, so its useless anyway.

    Hello - I have an A92 Mini and also am experiencing the BT pair issue. I tried everything in the thread and then called the dreaded tech support. After 45 minutes of troubleshooting (including just about everything we tried here) and also confirming that the VOX remote itself works (paired to my Bolt no problem) the tech acknowledged that they have a known issue here and that the engineers are working for a "speedy" resolution (of course he could not give me exact timing). He opened a case for me and it is logged in my tivo account. Typical release before you test scenario! Hoping they resolve soon.

    Did you ever figure out the remote issues?

    I am in the same boat. My 920000 wont pair with the Vox remote as well.

    Yes. My remotes are working with the latest RC9 update.

    My A92 Mini is still on 21.7.2 and still is not working as far as pairing my remote.

    I got a Vox remote without a dongle. But I have an old dongle from a TiVo Slide remote. Will that dongle work with my new Vox remote and a non-4K Mini and/or Roamio?

    No. Old dongle is RF. New dongle is Bluetooth.

    My old slide remote actually had a Bluetooth dongle.

    But I can’t get the Vox to pair with my Mini (A93 model) or my Roamio.

    I assume it’s a lost cause? This was a gift for someone with a Bolt who didn’t want it. I’ll keep it for myself if I can get it to work with my existing dongle.

    Pictured, my old slide remote dongle.

    I'm pretty sure you might need a VOX USB Bluetooth adapter.

    Bluetooth Dongle for TiVo VOX Remote (includes USB extension cable) - TiVo Part - WeaKnees - the DVR Superstore

    Ditto as of 12/2. Hoping for an update soon. Although I will say, at the Bolt the remote works flawlessly. I'm really amazed by how it recognizes every voice command I throw at it.

    My Son received the mini vox for Christmas. We finally got it up and running with Hydra today. I tried to pair the remote for the first time and the lights flashed 5 times like it was supossed to when it's paired. After that the remote only controls the TV. It does nothing when I press any Tivo functions. Now the remote is basically useless. I was on the phone with customer support and they are sending me a new remote. Hopefully that works. I'm confused though with the dongle that was mentioned above. My older slide remote's came with the dongle. I don't believe a dongle was included with the mini vox. Can someone let me know if I missed something?

    See this thread. Tivo Mini Vox remote will NOT pair in RF mode

    I had the same problem. You can manually change the remote back to IR mode, Tivo + Red C button.

    After that try what i did, Clear, Enter, Clear, 221, Clear. That clears any pairing and you can try again.

    And mini VOX doesn't need a dongle, has bluetooth built in.

    Thanks so much @rhoelzer. I will try that later on and try to get it to work. Funny how TiVo didn't give me those options when I was on the phone with tech support yesterday. They sent a new remote so as long as the new remote works I will be happy.

    Had the same problem with the new remote. I did a factory reset and tried again and finally it worked. Now I finally can use the vox. My Son loves it!
