Tivo remote went missing today and wound up...

on a flight for Seattle!

Looked around the house for our Tivo remote this morning to put some music on and it was nowhere to be found. Cushions, nope. Bedrooms, wrong again. Bathroom, not there. Pushed the remote finder on the base unit and didn't hear a sound. Furthermore, the light immediately turned off which indicated that it might not even be within signal range. Very weird since I was using it last night.

Wife accidentally threw it into her purse in her haste to get out of the house for a business trip this morning. So it is now spending the week in Seattle. Sorted this out on the plane and her seat mates on the flight got a big kick out of it. Pretty funny.

Luckily the Tivo app will also control the unit.

So, don't you find it suspicious that your wife is here in Seattle with me, and you at home? smiley-excited001

So, you are GIVING ME permission to push your wife's buttons?!? smiley-music039

We have a cheap TCL TV in our living room, which runs everything off of wi-fi. I have an Android Roku app that is a second remote.

That's what she told you. Payback for excessive channel surfing perhaps?

Could be worse. Our new puppy decided the Logitech Harmony on the coffee table was entirely too similar in shape to a dog toy over the weekend.

Geeeze, I was hoping it would have been in the freezer.

Is it RF or IR? You could Facetime Racer X and point your screen at the Tivo and have him try to point the remote at the camera.

That's how the Husky thought of our Roku! Had it for dessert shortly after swiping two DoubleDoubles w/onions - his breath could cause hair to curl for the next two days.
