So with the Roku TV I bought it came with a a regular remote(not enhanced). But when the TV starts up where it wants me to pick a language my remote will not work, i bought new batteries and have tried to but the batteries in many different ways but it still wont work.
So it is an IR remote, it needs a line-of-sight to the roku tv, is there anything in the front of the tv that might block the remote signal? You can check to see if the remote is emitting a signal by looking through the cellphone camera as you press a key, if you see a flash for each button push the remote is working, no flash bad remote.
