    I have a Tivo Roamio and do NOT have the new user experience... My remote recently died and went to buy a new one from Amazon. They have the following one for $27.99 but it's intended for the Vox with the Voice controls. Any reason why it won't work on my Roamio Plus. Obviously the voice control won't work which is fine. I'm interested in this one as it's about $12 cheaper than the one for the Roamio and its sold directly by Amazon and I have lots of Amazon credit that can only be use by products sold directly by Amazon. The other one is sold by a third party. Thanks

    I suggest you get the replacement. C00270.

    If the one I linked to completely works (minus the voice command), I'd prefer that as it wouldn't cost me anything because I have lots of Amazon credit. The C00270 would cost me $40. If I have to, I'll get that one but I want to first see if that other one will completely work first.

    They all will work in IR, and in RF (if capable.)

    The product link in your OP notes in the item description:
    • ** VERY IMPORTANT** NOTE: Owners of Roamio, Roamio OTA, or TiVo Mini should choose remote model C00301 (ASIN: B07635R5JB)
    C00301 requires updating to TE4 for full functionality (voice).

    That model is available, sold directly from Amazon.com.

    IMO, I would follow the suggestion from @JoeKustra

    What do you mean by that? You mean using it can accidentally upgrade to the new experience / hydra? I have small kids that use the remote all of the time and that would not be good...

    Pressing the VOX button (mic) button can trigger the downgrade to Hydra.

    Should you hit the mic button, there are three "are you sure?" prompts.
