RF TiVo Remote

Hi,

Is RF possible on a standard TiVo remote or will I need a converter? Can anyone point me in the direction of how to do this? I have searched Google to no avail.

Thanks

Hi Hetty,

RF = radio frequency. My TiVo box is in a cabinet and does not work if the door is closed as the remote is set to IR (infrared).

Thanks,

Dan

Re: RF TiVo Remote

Hi Dan,

 

Which box and remote do you have?

 

Can you visit our remote set up page  to see if you're able to change it to RF?

 

Please let us know how you get on.

 

Warm Regards,

Hi Lisa,

It is the big TiVo box that predates the V6 with standard remote that was provided with it. I can’t find any info on it.

It is possible on the V6 but don’t know about this one.

Thanks,

Dan

Re: RF TiVo Remote

Thanks Dan. 

It is only our V6 remotes that are RF, with all other boxes the box has to be in sight. 

Do you not fancy upgrading to a V6 box?

Hi Emma,

 

Ok thank you for confirming. Yes would like to upgrade if possible. How do I go about doing so?
