Will Multiple StreamingSticks+ interfere with each other?

Jump to solution

I'm investigating joining the Roku revolution... and I'm new at this.

The StreamingSticks+ I assume use RF communication between the remote and the stick, so that they can communicate with the device installed behind the TV. (unlike the Express or Premier that have a device that can be line-of-sight and use an IR remote)

If I purchase multiple StreamingSticks+, will their remotes activate the wrong device, because the signal goes through walls, etc.?

No, roku wifi remote can only be paired to single roku at a time. A roku can have more then one remote paired to it, but a single remote can not be paired to more then one roku.

Can having two streaming sticks plugged in and powered up when you try to pair remote send both into pairing mode and you pair with the wrong roku, yes that can happen. Just have one unplugged when installing the other.

Yes, I just got the Roku Express and it interferes with the Roku 4. Both remotes work with both devices, meaning when I do something on one remote it changes both tvs. I found this post searching for how to pair the remote specifically to each device.

The express and roku 4 both respond to the same IR commands. The roku 4 can be paired to wifi remote and still accept IR commands as well. The express depending on the model, a 3700 will only accept IR commands. Later model of express like 3900 & 3930 can be paired to wifi remote. If you have the right models of roku, get both paired to their own wifi remote, abandon the IR remotes, you won't have anymore conflicts.
