Universal Remote for TCL 55R635 and Optimum Cable Box

So, just got my new TCL Roku tv, model number #55R635.  As of now I need two remotes for the TV, because the ROKU remote is not capable of changing channels.  Does anyone know of a "universal" remote that may work for a set top cable box and the roku tv?  Thank you!

Re: Universal Remote for TCL 55R635 and Optimum Cable Box

Look at the One-For-All urc-7880 or Inteset 433-2, first is a 8-in-1 the second is 4 device remote. Both made by UEI, and so both takes advanced codes for missing commands or discrete commands like the roku apps. You can add a disney+ key to to other one by using advanced code 00139, to map it to a key. First program Roku tv code 14398 to the tv device, then:

 

1. roku tv device

2. press and hold SET/Magic key for two blinks, release

3. enter 9 9 4

4. tap SET/Magic key for one blink

5. enter advanced code 00139

6. pick a key

other apps are:

Fandango Now 00019

Slingtv 00017

vudu 00146

Roku media player 00110

Amazon 00156

netflix 00096

The Roku Ultra remote has two key 1 & 2 that can hold a memorized voice search, with two UEI universal remotes it will give access to three keys you can hold a voice search in, call them 1, 2, and 3 the advanced codes for them are:

1  is 00038

2 is 00040

3 is 00042

To use these you will need a roku voice remote with mircophone to initially store the commands into the 1,2, & 3 keys.

If you're looking for a universal remote with number keys 0-9 to direct entry of channels with your roku tv, forget it. Roku tv's DO NOT respond to the number keys on ANY universal remote. Sorry.

Well, that sucks.  Just got a new Roku TV and still have cable.  With no way to see or change channels with ANY remote, makes TV good for streaming, but not much else.  Will likely return.  Why not build in that functionality?

Thanks for your post and...

Well, that sucks.  Just got a new TCL 32 inch Roku TV and still have cable.  With no way to see or change cable channels with ANY remote, makes TV good for streaming, but not much else.  (Don’t have/use set top box, so don’t have remote for cable.). 

Will likely return TV.  Why not build in that functionality?
