Pairing a new remote to v6 box

The instructions say..go to settings. Since my new remote isn't paired it won't go to settings, or anything else. Any ideas please?

even without being RF Paired the IR will still work. Point the remote at the box to use it during setup

No, not working. The lights come on the remote , but it won't do anything.

Re: Pairing a new remote to v6 box

Hi Ragdoll, thanks for your post.

 

Sorry if this sounds tedious - but have you checked the batteries are in working order? 

 

If you have and the remote continues to not function, please feel free to send me a PM so I can arrange a replacement for you.

 

Tom

Try holding down the channel+ button on the Tivo for 10 seconds. 

Release and then hold the info button on the remote for 7 seconds. The green Led should flash twice then go green if it has paired successfully.
