Roku remote replacement for RokuTV

Have a Sanyo roku tv. Lost the remote. Can I pair an older remote from a roku 2 to the tv?

Re: Roku remote

The first roku 2's was the xs, which used blue tooth, and so wouldn't work. Later roku 2 used wifi direct as the roku tv do, but first wifi direct remotes never seem to work on roku TV's. I have tried at 6 older wifi remotes on my roku tvs.
