I am setting up a new 55" 4K TV. I use ethernet for all my other Roku's and would like to use ethernet for streaming on the new one. I know this locks me into Roku Ultra. The thing is, the TV will be hung on a wall and my Roku device will be INSIDE the wall behind the TV (my wife wants to hide everything). So the IR remote won't work. Is it possible for the Roku Ultra remote to use WiFi when the TV signal uses ethernet?
Sure, the roku ultra only comes with wifi remote, how the internet is delivered to the roku never comes in play while dealing with the remote. You could unplug cable router and modem and remote would still control the roku, you couldn't play anything but it will still move around the device.
I have a harmony hub with elite remote. Hub has to control thru WiFi but I want roku to use Ethernet for streaming. Is this possible? ThankS in advance.
I'm not sure what you're asking. Just as any wired device on your network can communicate with any wireless device on the same network the harmony hub can communicate with your Roku whether it's wired or wireless. The remote's interface to the hub doesn't really come into play. The remote communicates with the hub and the hub communicates with the Roku. Are you having a problem or just asking before you get a Roku?
harmony elite remote with harmony hub.
I have a roku ultra. On roku with the network setting set to wired, my harmony Setup search cannot find roku as a device. However it can be found and setup when connected to Wireless.
If I set it up in wireless mode and then switch it back to wired.. the Harmony elite remote can no longer Control the roku.
This looks like it could be a problem with your network setup. Can you try the Roku app on your phone and see if it can find your wired Roku?
