Re: Remote not working (buttons)

If its roku tv, they don't respond to the roku code in universal remotes. The Universal remote has have Roku tv codes in them, you can use older tv codes for power and volume but the cursor pad and menu won't work. For volume use the admiral or lg tv code in whatever universal remote you have. By the way what's model and brand of universal?
