I bought this from eBay:
TiVo VOX Voice Remote Control w/Dongle -Used- Roamio Bolt Netflix RCN | eBay

I thought I could use the dongle to pair my RF remote with my A92... because my A93 died and boot loops.

But I can't get it to work (pair). The remote stays in IR mode (flashes red instead of orange).

I am using TE3. Is it because the dongle is Bluetooth and I need to be running TE4 for it to work? No way I am doing that. Or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks.

Seems like it's possible:


but not easily. (CLICK on the QUOTE's Title and read the whole thread on Reddit. I don't know why the TCF software turned a LINK into a QUOTE but there's more info on Reddit.)

@JoeKustra might know (this 'tag' will alert him to this thread).

I have a dongle from the TiVo 'Keyboard Remote' that is supposed to work with my A92 Mini but I haven't gotten a 'Round Tuit' yet... :oops:

Messed around with that... still couldn't get it to pair.

Thanks but I have an A92, not a MiniVOX (which is an A95 I think?). I have 2 A95's paired with remotes already (also running TE3)... I want to pair my old A92 so I bought the dongle... but so far no success. I'll see if there's any helpful info for my case on that Reddit thread.

Just spit-balling here... ;)

See if the dongle from the TiVo 'Keyboard Remote' will fill your need... :cool:

Folks need to learn the intricacies of the GOOGLE Search Command (i.e. site:tivocommunity.com) and play with various parameters. I find LOTS of things that way... :D

The VOX remote/dongle would be BLE (Bluetooth) and not RF like the A93 remote.

OK.. and I'm guessing Bluetooth dongles won't work with TE3? I have VOX remotes and non-VOX remotes and neither will pair with the VOX dongle I got on my A92 running TE3.
