There is a spanking new TiVo Slide Pro Remote in the market, where it will feature a slide out QWERTY keyboard as well as sport fully backlit buttons that make it a snap for you to use in dark rooms (which is normal whenever dusk falls and you want to enjoy your favorite movie or TV show in the comfort of your living room with all of the lights turned off). Apart from that, the TiVo Slide Pro Remote will also feature an ergonomic exterior that makes it pleasing to the eyes, but external aesthetics are not the only thing that make the TiVo Slide Pro Remote worth checking out.
It is said to be accompanied by a more powerful signal, as apart from IR, one will also be able to enjoy an RF signal, which will do away with the need for line-of-sight requirements, hence making it the perfect trooper for an in-cabinet or home theatre setup. You also need not fret over the possibility of losing this remote, since pressing a button on either of these units will kick off a built-in remote finder. Just how does that work? A jingle will play, letting you know just where the TiVo Slide Pro Remote is, and there is no need to lose time looking for that remote when you can sit down on your favorite La-Z-Boy chair and watch whatever TV show that has caught your attention. The TiVo Slide Pro Remote will play nice with all TiVo Roamio DVRs, TiVo Premiere DVRs and TiVo Minis with dongle. [Press Release]
