58" Hisense Roku TV - Remote

Jump to solution

I have a 58" Hisense Roku TV. I notice my remote must be the most basic, because often, if I don't have it pointed right at the sensor on the TV, it doesn't work right, sometimes even with new batteries. Is there a Roku Remote I can get that will work with this TV using other tech, (I think RF is what works better). And if so, how hard is it to setup on the Roku TV.

Either of the voice remotes will work with your TV, but you have to pair it first.

Thanks. I am looking at buying the Voice Remote Pro. The page tells me it will work with my Roku TV. But something odd, it also tells me it will work with my Roku 2 (an older model, added to my account in 2012). But it is not listing that it will work with my Roku Express + (which is newer than the Roku 2, added to my account in 2018). Why is that? You would think it'd work with a newer Roku before it would work with an older Roku.

@QuiGonJohn, you would think, but there were some early "Express" models that don't support the voice remote.  I don't know the reason.

OK thanks. And BTW, I don't think the 2 Express+'s that I have were very early or the year indicated that I added it to our account is correct. In May 2019, we moved from Davie, FL to Spring Hill, FL. I am sure I did not upgrade my older Roku devices until some time after moving here. I bought them when I got an email promo from Roku as my in use (at that time) Roku devices were becoming unsupported. So that would be 2019 or more likely 2020/2021. I was able to find an order on the Roku site for (1) Express+ in April 2020. But I definitely have (2). Only one is showing. How can I see older orders? Oh, and the product description has the (2018) designation. And the one I am still using says it was added on May 14, 2020.
