I was given a used Roku hd with no remote

I was given a roku hd 2500x with no remote. I have downloaded the roku app but cannot get my hotspot or WiFi connected to the roku. Is there anything I can do?

Re: I was given a used Roku hd with no remote

The Roku app can only be used for a Roku that is already connected to the local network, and to set that up that you'll need a remote. The 2500 is pretty old, having been released in 2012, but Roku has not changed its set of infrared control codes since then. Any inexpensive universal IR remote you find at the dollar store or Walmart will work, as long as it lists that it supports Roku.
