    Does the Mini use the same remotes as the Roamio, so that if I see something advertised on ebay as a remote for Roamio, I can use it on a Mini?

    I've seen some Tivo remotes branded with cable companies, like RCN, DirecTV, or Mediacom. I assume there is nothing wrong with using these.

    For a Mini V2, I guess it would be good to make sure a replacement remote uses RF.

    Yes.

    The first version of the Mini is not RF, so the remote would need to be in IR mode, but it would nevertheless work. The Mini responds to the same IR commands as the Roamio. There isn't any non-TiVo remote I know of that supports the TiVo RF mode, but there are many that support TiVo IR, some very well and some with mixed results.

    However, I would not consider someone proffering on eBay to be a reliable narrator.

    I use the RF remote in IR mode with my A92 Mini since the layout is the same.
