Remote Programme for 2 x Tivo Boxes

Does anybody know how to pair 1 Tivo remote to work with 2 x Tivo boxes?

I have an old remote that works on both boxes but the new remote I have just received only works on 1 Tivo box

Re: Remote Programme for 2 x Tivo Boxes

Do you have V6 boxes or TiVo boxes?

The older TiVo remotes use IR commands so will work with any box they're pointed at (including V6 boxes)

The V6 boxes use RF remotes to need to be 'paired' to a box to work, and aren't design to work with multiple boxes at the same time.

If you do have V6 boxes, you can download the TV Control app to an Android or iOS device and that can be using to control multiple V6 boxes from one device. You can also use TV Control with TiVo boxes, but they need to be connected to your Hub before the Remote functions are possible.

Yes - the V6 boxes will respond the IR Commands from the older TiVo remotes. That was so they could be used as backup while you wait for replacement remote.

However the V6 boxes are designed to work with their RF remotes and each remote is designed to work with its paired box

Re: Remote Programme for 2 x V6 Boxes

I think I have confused myself and othe people so sorry.

I have 2 x V6 boxes with the orginal remote that works on both boxes.

I have received a new remote which I can't get working with box boxes like the orginal V6 remote I have

Re: Remote Programme for 2 x V6 Boxes

The V6 remotes are not designed to work on multiple boxes by default. They will fall back to IR if the setup has gone wrong, but it's not that easy to get the remotes to do it on purpose.

You *may* be able to do it by resetting the remote:

And then keeping it out of range of the V6 boxes for a period of time until it gives up trying to pair to one of the boxes.
