Using the backlight on a TiVo Learning remote
*All fields required unless otherwise indicated.
Both the TiVo Glo Premium remote and Slide remote have a backlight. A sensor on the front of the remote detects when a room is dark and activates the backlight as soon as you press a button.
Under some conditions, such as when the room is lit by certain types of fluorescent lighting, the sensor may think the room is dark all the time and turn the backlight on for extended periods. If this happens, the battery life will be shortened.
To turn the backlight off: Press and hold the TIVO and the THUMBS DOWN buttons until the activity light blinks three times, and then press CLEAR.
To turn the backlight on: Press and hold the TIVO and the THUMBS UP buttons until the activity light blinks three times, and then press ENTER.
In a darkened room, press any button to confirm that the backlight is now at the setting you want.
