Remote Pairing

To use TiVo Stream 4K, your remote must be paired with the device. You'll be prompted to do this during device setup, and if your remote can control your TiVo Stream 4K, then the remote is paired correctly. However, if you get a new remote or if your remote ever becomes unpaired, you may need to pair it manually. There are two options for doing so.

Alternatively, you can pair a new remote from the Android TV settings menu. Press the circle button on the remote to go to the Android TV home screen, then choose the gear icon to go to the Android TV settings menu. Select “Remotes & Accessories” to pair your remote.

In either case, if the remote control does not pair:

  1.  Remove the USB power cable from the Stream 4K and disconnect the Stream 4K from the HDMI port.
  2.  Wait 10 seconds, reconnect the Stream 4K to the HDMI port and reconnect the USB power cable.
  3.  Repeat the pairing process above.
  4.  During the pairing process, make sure the remote is in close proximity to the Stream 4K, and make sure there are no active Bluetooth devices near the Stream 4K (this can interfering with pairing).

If you continue to have an issue pairing your remote, see Remote Troubleshooting below.
