Connecting DVD player to Roku TV remote?

Jump to solution

Can I connect my DVD player up to my Onn ROKU tv remote? I can’t find my dvd payer remote and it would be easier to be able to use the ROKU remote to control the DVD player. If so, how do I do it?

Go to settings, select TV Inputs, choose Antenna/Live TV, then 'remove antenna/live tv'.  
Then turn on the connected DVD player (I put a dvd in and pressed play just in case).  
Then go to Settings - Inputs - Add Antenna/Live TV - Scan for channels - it will ask if you need channels 3 &4 - Say Yes.  Then it takes a while to get through the channels - "Finding Channels".  
Go to Settings again - TV Inputs - AV should now be one of the choices - I cannot remember what I chose next - may have been "Add" or "Show Input" - something positive.
Then go to the HOME screen - then you should see "AV" as one of the tiles.  Selecting it should show the DVD playing.

Why do I have to disable my live tv to have my roku remote work with my DVD player

@Psychoariklover

Thanks for the inquiry.

Please be aware that Roku remotes will only be able to control Roku devices and TV power and volume with select remotes.

Roku remotes do not support control for your DVD player.


Thanks,
