DirectTV remote to control Roku smart soundbar volume

Connection is DirectTV Box -> TV <-> Roku Smart Soundbar. When input to TV is on RSB the Roku remote only to control Roku and Roku Sound. When input to TV is on DTV then have to use 2 remotes, Roku remote for soundbar and DirectTV remote for DirectTV. How can we use DirectTV remote to control the Roku Soundbar? See connection at start. DirectTV remote settings does not see the Roku Soundbar.

How is the sound bar attached to the TV, by ARC or Optical? Or just plugged in to any odd hdmi?

Thanks for responding. The TV is connected to Soundbar via both HDMI and Optical.

Re: DirectTV remote to control Roku smart soundbar volume

@Bobh94  If the Soundbar is connected to your TV via an HDMI ARC port, and you have ARC/CEC enabled on both the TV and the Soundbar, you may be able to use your DirecTV remote to control your TV's audio (and therefore the soundbar's audio level) via HDMI ARC, IF your DirecTV remote allows universal programming functionality to program it to control your TV. This is a potential setup that may work, however, it may not depending on the capabilities of your 3rd party remote and your TV. 

I would recommend contacting your TV manufacturer for any additional questions, or help with trying to program a 3rd party universal remote for your TV.

 

Thanks,

Tanner
