Sorry but there is no way to switch inputs on a non-roku tv from a roku remote. You have tv power, volume and on newer remotes mute nothing else. You need to use the tv remote.

Re: Roku Ultra on Sharp TV

Thank you, but you miss-understand.

 I realize that I can’t change input on the Roku remote. I need to change it on the Sharp TV.

It’s currently on Direct TV, HDMI1.

I had to change it to HDMI4 previously to get access to ROKU.

 I forgot what I did before to make it work.

If you an older White Directv remote, to program the tv input key on the directv remote:

1. tv

2. press and hold MUTE & SELECT for two blinks, release

3. enter 9 6 0

Re: Roku Ultra on Sharp TV

Thank you, but it is not an older direct tv remote. It is the smaller white on. I still tried, but no where to select tv, when I hit mute & select, nothing happened except that I muted it.

 I have a universal remote that has my satellite, blue ray dvd & vcr choices.

when on satellite, it will show the input on the right upper corner of the screen, and that is where I used to be able to change the input to pick up my Roku.
