My TiVo remote uses RF (radio frequency) to talk to the TiVo box. Is there a way to boost the signal? I know there are IR boosters, but I need an RF booster.

Is it fully paired? I think there is a way to fore it to use IR. Directions for both on the web.

Yes. It works most of the time. The box is in a closet, so I don't want IR.
Might be part of the problem. I imagine the transmitters are pretty low powered.

This is w-a-a-a-y out of my league, but I Googled 'Tivo RF remote extender' and found a couple but it seems 'not currently available' which has been inflicted on a lot of things lately. There is also some chatter about a remote IR receiver that plugs into the box. Beyond any of that, I'm out. Good luck.

Your best source of information is going to be Tivo. Low power transmitters can operate in different frequency bands, so finding a "booster" would not be easy. Particularly since they will likely be brand specific because there are just too many variables involved.

The Roamio and everything that came after do not have an IR input port.
