V6 remote locator function doesn't work

Just had the new V6 installed, can't get the remote locator (where it beeps) function to work.  The bloke who came to install it was a trainee and didn't know how to fix it!

Re: V6 remote locator function doesn't work

You need to pair the remote to the V6.

Press and hold the Info button for 7 seconds and the red light at the top of the remote should flash green twice when it has paired.
I had to do the same thing yesterday after trying to use the find the remote option on Sunday and it not working.

yep, have paired it but when I press the + button on the front of the box nothing happens, there's no beep.

Go into Tivo settings and do it from there, I had to do same but the range is still as poor as IR but at least they now bleep so I assume on Bluetooth not IR.

You need to keep your finger on the up button on the v6 not just press it

I had to hold the button for about 20 seconds before it worked
