Roku TV-Need a private listening remote

My father has an old school Roku TV. I would like him to be able to hear the tv as loud as he would like but with headphones. His remote does not have a jack. Is there a remote with a headphone jack or other item I could add to the tv so we could get this for him?

Re: Roku TV-Need a private listening remote

Only certain models of roku tv will work with headphone remote, they include these models of roku tv:

Roku TV (model series 6000X, 7000X, C000X, 8000X, A000X)

Go to settings>system> about> look at the first line next Roku tv: ? Its the first digit that matters, the zeroes in the middle change with where it was bought, they don't matter. 

If its something else it probably won't work. Anyways the remote is on backorder until sometime in October. 

You could try Roku cellphone app, theres a headphone button if its connected to a input it might be crossed out. It only works when on an app or watching a show.
