Given device with no remote

I have factory reset the device, which is a Premiere, and bought a remote for it. However, I cannot get the remote to pair with it. I tried instructions given online, many times. The pair light just blinks and eventually stops, while the Roku sits on the 'Let's Get Started' screen. Help, please.

Re: Given device with no remote

I would get an IR remote first before attempting to pair a RF remote to it. Are either roku and roku wifi remote new? Sounds like no, an IR remote would work right away without the need to pair, once its working, and updated, then try pairing wifi remote.
