TiVo Slide Remote review


The TiVo Slide Remote is officially available for sale today, for $89, and will hit Best Buy stores this weekend but TiVo was nice enough to send us one a

Easy to setup ; Adds a keyboard without sacrifice ; Also works with a PC

TiVo Slide Remote


Full slide-out QWERTY keyboard with numeric keypad. Backlit buttons. Pocket-size. IR-learning remote. Bluetooth eliminates the need for line-of-sight positioning. 30-foot range

Pricey. Smaller size requires some finger retraining. Web site works just as well for searching and recording. Only compatible with TiVo Premiere and TiVo HD/Series 3 DVRs

Pretty good, poor range


I was disappointed with the range of this remote. I wanted to be able to use it in the other room to avoid buying IR extenders.I had to put the receiver on an extra long USB cable and put it up high in order to get only spotty reception in my other...

Finally a TIVO remote that works!


You MUST use the bluetooth function if you want to enjoy this unit. It transforms it into a completely different animal! Can't beat the qwerty keyboard. Raised characters that light! Can't say what a difference this remote makes. Get one!
