I'm considering adding a Roku Smart Sound bar or Roku Stream bar to an older Insignia TV with a built in Roku player. The internal player is no longer being updated so there are certain channels (Apple TV+, etc) that cannot be added that I'm currently streaming through an Xbox One. The TV has an HDMI ARC port but my main question is will this cause any problems such as with the remote trying to control both players? Any advice would be appreciated
The Roku Soundbar's remote will not interfere with Roku tv since they use different IR commands. and currently Roku soundbars come with wifi voice remote which can only be paired to one roku at a time. The roku Soundbar would be great upgrade for your old Roku tv, you can set the tv to tune to soundbar when turned on:
settings> system> power> power on> check hdmi arc
