Our take on the TiVo® Slide Remote

by 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.

Features

Overview: The TiVo Slide remote lets you control your compatible TiVo DVR via Bluetooth or IR.  Hidden inside the remote's ergonomic, peanut-shaped exterior is a fully retractable QWERTY keyboard for quick and easy text entry.

Compatibility: The TiVo Slide remote control is compatible with the TiVo Premiere and TiVo Premiere XL.

Bluetooth & IR: The TiVo Slide remote features built-in Bluetooth and comes with a USB/Bluetooth adapter to plug into your compatible TiVo DVR. Bluetooth provides increased range and strength to accommodate clutter-free setups inside cabinets. The remote will also act as a standard IR remote control.

Plug-and-Play Setup: The TiVo Slide remote control offers easy plug-and-play setup that puts you in control in moments. Simply plug the included USB/Bluetooth adapter into the USB port on back of your compatible TiVo DVR and you are ready to go.

Backlit Keys: The TiVo Slide remote features an integrated light sensor which automatically activates the remote's glow feature for the backlit keys and keyboard, so you can use the remote control easily in the dark and never have to turn on a light.

Slide-out Keyboard: The TiVo Slide remote's full QWERTY-format keyboard enables faster and easier text entry for Search, YouTube, RSS and other functions of your TiVo DVR. The slide-out keyboard only functions when the remote is in Bluetooth mode.

Learning: The TiVo Slide remote learns commands for power, input, volume, and mute directly from the remote controls of your TV and receiver (without entering any codes). The remote control acts as an IR remote when controlling your TV or receiver (Bluetooth is not operable).

Indicator Light: The TiVo Slide remote features an activity indicator light on front of the remote control which flashes blue when in Bluetooth mode and amber when in IR mode.

Power Requirements: The TiVo Slide remote operates off of two "AA" alkaline batteries (included).
