UGLY, BORING DETAILS AND A FIX:
There is a small daughter board in this remote that sits above the battery compartment. This board is only connected by a 20 pin (guess) connecter and nothing else. Over time the daughter board, which is the heart of the device, becomes loose - explaining the loss of functionality over time, then death when the board becomes disconnected. You may hear it rattle, if it becomes completely disconnected, when you shake your remote.
The daughter board needs to be reseated or reconnected. You can get to it if you remove the one small screw on the bottom of the battery compartment and work your way up the edge of the case carefully with a screwdriver till you remove the bottom of the case. With the back off, you should see the daughter board, either coming off, or completely disconnected. If it is still connected, press firmly at the socket end to re-seat, and, optionally tape it or, for the more adventurous, dab some hot glue on the edge to hold it down. Then put the back back on.
If it is completely off - find the socket and plug it back in - the body of the daughter board covers over the LED and is not oriented in the direction of the batteries. You may then have to contend with the small rectangular magnets that can come loose. There are these small rectangular holes on the right side on the edge where these magnets fit. With the remote closed while the back is off, try and fit the magnets back in.Read more ›
Still going strong. Happened to see the price drop at TiVo.com and thought I'd come back in here for an update. Nothing to report, still going strong, remote is still solid, etc. Doesn't show age at all, like the old remotes.
Sometimes I look at my old Glo-remote and it looks and feels cheap in comparison, the buttons are WAY too far apart and a lot of the "black" on the buttons are worn off. Plus, if you left on the "Glow" feature it ATE batteries at an ALARMING rate.
For the money, the Slide Remote is an even BETTER deal than before. I'd buy it again - no doubt.
Had the Slide Remote 5 months now. Still works great. I don't use the keyboard that much, but when I do; it's SO much easier. Remote is holding up fine, well-built. Fast input, love the fast input vs. typical remote. I really enjoy the size, smaller IS better.
I sympathize with people who have had problems. I guess there are ALWAYS people who have problems. It's usually not me, however.
Best remote I've ever had. I wish ALL my remotes were bluetooth.
I have a TiVo HD XL.
This is a Great Remote.
There are a lot of reasons to like the Slide Remote.
Of course, the slide keyboard. Bluetooth allows TiVo to be in a cabinet or control TiVo without line of sight-- like listening to music, etc., plus Bluetooth is not directional- so you don't have to aim the remote. Also, just like the older Glo Remote -- many keys are learning capable, the power button can turn on and off BOTH the receiver and TV with one key press.Read more ›
1. Command operations: The biggest issue I have with this remote is the inconsistent results from button presses. Often if you press a button on the TiVoSlide Remote the LED on the remote will indicate signal transmission and the Bluetooth dongle will indicate activity, but the TiVo will not respond. In some cases, the first button press will do nothing but subsequent ones are properly acknowledged, as if you have to wake up the TiVo to process commands. Other times you can execute multiple button presses over an extended period of time and see no results. Finally, in some instances, a single press of a button (preceded by a long duration of no activity to ensure no commands may be in queue) will elicit multiple commands on the TiVo, as if you had pressed the button many times or held it down to repeat the command. There appear to be some issues with the TiVo's handling of Bluetooth remote commands.
2. Physical layout/design: This is the smallest iteration of a TiVo remote I have seen, whereas the TiVo Premier is the largest iteration I have seen (experienced with TiVo Series 1, 2, 3, and 4). The two remotes are worlds apart. As other reviewers have mentioned, the button arrangement on the TiVoSlide is overly compacted and it is heavy for such a small device. The added weight gives the impression of quality, but once you start using it you realize it's lacking.

After 3.5 years of use, it is now dead. It worked very well initially, but deteriorates as battery dies. After about 2.5 years the bluetooth started to become spotty. Read morePublished 5 months ago by ///M

I love this, because you can save lots of time using the keyboard to type in searches instead of using the on-screen mode. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Homer87
