Multiple v6 Remotes with the same v6 TiVo box ?

(I know that the new v6 remote has to be paired with the v6 TiVo), but I haven't found any mention of multiple remotes ...
So, does anyone know if I can I pair and use more than one v6 remote concurrently with the same v6 TiVo box?
i.e. one remote for myself, and one for the wife

I think a few customers are surprised to receive a real live V6 remote with their installation, let alone 2! Smiley Wink

I'd expect it'll only listen to one at once (as it's RF rather than Bluetooth), but unless it's hidden in a cupboard, you could use a TiVo remote as the second controller.

The supplied remote is RF and probably only one RF remote can be paired with a V6.

The V6 also has IR remote control, so will respond to any valid IR command from any IR remote as long as the V6 is not in an IR opaque location. The V6 responds to the same IR commands as the TiVO.

My wife and I do exactly that. One of us uses the new V6 paired remote and the other the old TiVo remote.

So Ernie, both you and the wife control what is to be watched?

When is the divorce Smiley Happy

Nice to be able to post again, after their mistake (removed by the Censorship team).

Well I use a new v6 remote and my wife uses an old v+ remote as she hates the tiny buttons on the new remotes and all she wants to do is channel surf

She's allowed to fast forward through adverts if I'm on here trying to respond to a post.😜
