Roku sound bar + Roku tv used together

I purchased a Roku Sound Bar for an older tv. This older tv now needs to be replaced. 

If I purchase a Hisense Roku Tv can I use a Roku Sound Bar with a Roku TV?

If yes, which remote would I use to control both?

Would I be better off our buying a non-Roku tv?

Re: Roku sound bar + Roku tv used together

Do you mean streambar (can the device stream video?)

I think streambar (all models) can do 4k, so a good quality 4k TV with Streambar would be a better option than a Roku TV. 

Or sell the streambar and get one of the better Roku TV (TCL reviews well), and enhance sound of that with a non Roku sound bar if wanted (unsure if Roku wireless speakers can work with Roku TV or only devices).

Not having both simplifies the "which control to use" question.

Thanks for the inquiry.

You can use your Roku audio product with a Roku TV.

Re: Roku sound bar + Roku tv used together

Danny, I have a 5 Series TCL Roku TV, and purchased a streambar to go with my Roku Wireless speakers. Now when I'm streaming, I don't have access to Dolby Vision content. I believe this is because my streambar is now the default streaming device rather than my TV's internal Roku. Is there any way to fix this? I want to be able to use the streambar for audio but stream in Dolby Vision through my TV's internal Roku.
