Shiny TiVo Glo Remote Available as Stand-Alone

TiVo is shipping the Glo Remote, the luxo-premium controller that's normally included with the TiVo Series 3 HD box, as a $50 standalone product. Of course, it works with the Series 3 but also works with most Series 2 units, too.

We have one of these remotes in-house, and really like its shiny piano-black finish. However, we do wish it had a gravity switch to turn on the backlighting for the buttons, like the Logitech Harmony 880 does. This TiVo Glo Remote's backlight sometimes doesn't turn on when you want it to.

That said, it's still a first-class controller for TiVos, and it's a learning remote, too, so you can use it to control power, input, volume, and mute on TVs and A/V receivers.
