Hello - I own a MX-880. I have had it for ~ 6 months. I bought it locally though a dealer, who was willing to give me the software and let me try on my own.

I have the remote programmed the way I want, but the when I use it to control my TiVo I notice that it is not as responsive as the native TiVO remote.

I have it it set up through RF, but even just with IR only, it is still sluggish when compared to the native TiVO remote.

Is anyone able to offer any insight or advice?

thanks,

Did you learn the codes, or use the per-programmed codes?

I use the preprogrammed codes (DVR 117). I have it set at two repeats, with the "repeat while button held" option checked. I tried learning from the remote, but found that it was wore.

I have a Tivo HD, FWIW.

If you didn't say it was also poor on IR only, I would tell you to check your emitter placement.

I've never messed with the repeats. Try adding it back in but not adjusting the repeats.

-and check your emitter placement.

FWIW, I'm using URC remotes with six TiVos throughout my house, and they all work perfectly. What model TiVo is it? The Premieres can be a bit sluggish when using the HDUI.

1) Check to make sure you are not getting any rf interfernece on the antenna and make sure the rf id is not set to zero.

2) Try adjusting the trim level on the flasher output that is connected to the Tivo(use the little screwdriver to adjust the ir output level on the top or back of the radio frequency base station) Try turning it in each direction.

3) Move the flasher around the front a little sometimes moving it a cm makes a difference

4) Make sure you.assign the ir outputs for each flasher (i.e. don't set them to all, assign each one)

5) If you are using a mrf 260 sell it on ebay and buy a mrf350 it is much more reliable. Sorry not a fan never sell them.

Thanks for the replies guys

@ Loraquest: its not the Tivo premiere, its the geneeration before that (TiVO HD, I believe).

@ Matt: I did try moving the flasaher all around. I do have a 260....maybe I'll try getting my paws on a 350 to see if that helps.
