TCL 49S517 change to IR remote

Hello

I am using a soundbar that doesn't have HDMI ARC, but the WiFi Roku remote will not send IR signals if it is paired to the Roku TV

I was wondering if I purchased the Roku® Standard IR Remote from the Roku accessories store if it would work with my Roku TV (which does have IR fallback)

The IR remote sold by Roku will not control TCL Roku TV, if you need an IR remote I suggest eBay.

Hi,

Thanks for letting us know about the issue that you are experiencing.

If you are looking for a replacement remote for your Roku TV, you would need to contact your TV manufacturer. You can reach TCL here: https://support.tclusa.com/

You can also order a replacement remote that is compatible with your TV on the Roku TV Accessory page here: Roku TV™ Accessories

Happy Streaming!

Supposedly there's secret menu that has feature to unpair all RF remotes, once done your oem remote will start communicating via IR to TV. No need to get another remote.
