Need help setting up Roku without the remote, phone cannot find it
Help! I am staying the month at a different house and brought my TV and Roku with me. My remote stopped working long ago and I have been having to use my phone. Well now that I am on a different network, my Roku is not working. When I went to go look for it on my phone, it cannot find my Roku device and it does not have my Roku on my known devices. I really do not want to go buy a new one because then I will have two but I am not sure what to do at this point.
Re: Need help setting up Roku without the remote, phone cannot find it
Go to Walmart or the dollar store and look for a universal remote that supports Roku. Oh, and if you have a stick, you're really out of luck; you must have a Roku remote. Don't bother searching for other solutions. You can just look through this forum and see the multitude of people that have asked the same question.
