So, I decided to try the old RF4CE reset that High Tech posted in #29 on this thread:

- Force the remote out of RF mode and into IR mode only - Hold down TiVo + the letter "C" button until the remote flashes red 3 times. Now, the remote should only flash red when pressing buttons.
- Point the remote at the MINI VOX and press <CLEAR><ENTER><CLEAR> 221 <CLEAR>. This clears the pairing table on the MINI, although this probably wasn't necessary since the MINI had never been paired with anything before. It can't hurt.
- Press any button (I used the up arrow) and see if the remote goes into pairing mode flashing slow yellow. You can also force it to enter pairing mode by holding down TiVo + BACK key.

At this point, my remote immediately paired with the MINI in RF mode and voice control worked. Since a couple of other people reported that this worked for them too, I'll have our customer support team update their instructions accordingly.
Now the hard part to get the programmers to figure out why this is happening...

Hello there, sorry to be the bearer of bad news but I followed every step of the procedure above carefully with the VOX Remote that came with my MINI VOX and it did not work for me. When I pressed the up arrow the remote did not go into pairing mode and so I held down the Tivo + BACK key as suggested and the remote did then go into pairing mode flashing slow yellow but after around 20 seconds the flashing stopped as opposed to blinking quickly first as I understand should happen. When I press buttons on the remote it continues to flash red instead of yellow as before.

I also have two A92 TiVo minis that will not pair with VOX remote/dongle. My ROAMIO Pro is working perfectly with VOX remote/voice commands. Should I call customer service to create a ticket or just wait patiently? I bought my Vox remotes/dongles from Amazon. I don't want to get stuck with a remote that doesn't work. o_O

There is an update coming (to RC9) that fixes the VOX pairing with an A92 mini. Some of us tested RC9 over the weekend and it does fix the pairing issue.

The following bugs are fixed in RC9:
  • V66 errors when going to Live TV on a Mini
  • VOX remote will not pair with an A92 series Mini
  • Occasional empty guides on DVRs and Minis
  • Stuttering after trick play, 30 sec skip or commercial skip
  • 'Title not available' in the info bar
  • Lost live TV buffer when recording starts
There may be more, but those are the issues I saw and which were fixed.

If you PM me your TSN's (DVR & MINI's), I can get you RC9 soon. Full release probably won't be until next week.

@TiVo_Ted Sending you a PM now. I'm having an issue where when I start live TV on a Mini Vox (only 2 connected so far), the live TV stutters initially. No audio for about 10 seconds with maybe 5-10 frame changes during that period. Then live TV works. If I change channels, this doesn't occur again. It's only with the initial stream of live TV.

Success!!

After providing the TSN for my MINI VOX to @TiVo_Ted earlier this afternoon the unit downloaded 21.R7.2.RC8-USH-11-A95 and after a reboot I was able to pair it in RF mode by holding down Tivo + BACK key.

Thanks @TiVo_Ted !!!

In the spirit of dogfooding, I setup a BOLT VOX and 2 new MINI VOX's, all connected via MoCA with a separate MoCA Bridge. The BOLT VOX and MINI VOX paired to their remotes during setup just as they are supposed to do. But, the VOX Remote that came with the second MINI VOX would not pair with the MINI VOX.

Glad to be of service and thanks for the shout-out, Ted!

I know you said that you thought the device-side reset of the remote pairing isn't necessary, but that's the difference between the original "remote control reset" procedure that you posted and the combined "remote control + remote receiver in the device reset" that I posted. Something appears to be askew on the device side on the Bolt/Bolt Vox/Mini Vox devices that ends up getting reset when you issue that command.

Downloaded 21.R7.2.RC8-A92-6-A92 and rebooted. Still won't pair up with my A92 series mini when I push TiVo and back button. I cleared the remote and started fresh but still no luck. Am I missing something?

You need RC9 to fix the A92 voice remote problem. I submitted your TSN's so you should have it soon.

I just read this on the VOX sale page:
"and TiVo Mini when combined with Bluetooth® dongle (included)"
Any idea if that's a true statement, i.e. the new, VOX remote works with an old Mini?
It's true. The VOX remote works with the original generation mini, but to get the voice-activated capability and non-line-of-sight you need both the TiVo Bluetooth dongle AND your mini must be running at least RC9. If either condition is not met, the remote will work only as an IR remote and no VOX.

Is there a trick to get voice working on the new Mini Voxs? Just got 3 new Mini Voxs... They've been updated to RC9.. All 3 do not work with voice -- attempting to do so throws the microphone on the screen and after a few seconds I get a D402 error - Voice not currently available.

All 3 are paired and working fully in RF mode -- at least I get yellow flashes for everything.

The BOLT VOX and MINI VOX paired to their remotes during setup just as they are supposed to do. But, the VOX Remote that came with the second MINI VOX would not pair with the MINI VOX. It would blink once red quickly (IR) and then would flash yellow slowly trying to pair. But, it would not blink quickly showing it had paired. So, I decided to carefully try everything we've told you guys to try:

- Unplugged the BOLT VOX and other MINI VOX so there was no possibility of the remote connecting to another TiVo box.
- Made sure there was no RF interference near the new MINI VOX
- Took the batteries out and replaced with new batteries
- Held the remote near, far, upside down, sideways, etc.
- Restarted the MINI

It still would flash red with key presses and slow blink yellow trying to pair. Then, I tried the next step (remote control Global Reset):

- Held down TiVo + Power, followed by 3 thumbs-down and ENTER

The remote still wouldn't pair. At this point, my wife commented - "Wow, if your customers have to go through this, they must be pissed". Yeah, thanks honey. So, I decided to try the old RF4CE reset that High Tech posted in #29 on this thread:

- Force the remote out of RF mode and into IR mode only - Hold down TiVo + the letter "C" button until the remote flashes red 3 times. Now, the remote should only flash red when pressing buttons.

Ted,

I pretty much did all of this today (my wife and daughter are visiting my sister-in-law, who has terminal cancer; I had to work until an hour ago). Unfortunately, despite several days of trying AND having RC9 installed, I cannot get my remote to pair with my Mini Vox in my daughter's playroom. The TSN is:

I've tried all above steps, taking out the battery and reinstalled it, rebooting the TiVo, clearing paired remotes, etc. etc. etc. No luck.
