Our take on the TiVo® Slide Remote by Crutchfield's Steve Kindig
The TiVo® Slide remote puts the full power of TiVo's latest Internet-ready DVRs in the palm of your hand. Hidden inside its ergonomic exterior is a fully retractable QWERTY keyboard that slides out for quick and easy text entry. It makes all the difference when you're typing in text for search, YouTube, etc.
Besides providing total control of your TiVo box, the Slide remote can learn commands for power, input, volume and mute directly from the remote controls of your TV and receiver. Thoughtful design touches include a light sensor that automatically activates a glow feature on the backlit keys and keyboard, so you're never left fumbling in the dark. And TiVo's famously easy plug-and-play setup will have you up and running in record time.
