2021 LG tv and Roku Premier+ (4630x) controlling power and volume
I have a Roku Premier+ 4630x and a brand new LG tv (2021 model)
I had this Roku on my old Sharp TV that was older and everything worked fine. After getting the new LG tv I did not like their WebOS interface so I went back to my Roku. Everything works great except that the Roku remote is not changing the volume or powering off the TV.
Solutions I tried...
- My LG tv does have the CEC enabled. However on the Roku the remote is still saying "The current remove does not support tv control"
- I have rebooted both the TV and Roku multiple times
- I have factory reset both the TV and Roku.
Is there any way I can get my Roku remote to control the TV volume? If not, does anyone have a good universal remote to suggest?
Your original 4630 premiere+ remote did not have tv IR on board. It only controlled the volume by hdmi-cec. That's why it tells you that remote doesn't have tv controls like newer remotes have. It would be waste to just upgrade your remote for $20, the price of roku voice remotes with tv controls, when you can get the newest Roku the express 4k+ for $30 on sale:
I also have the 4630x and the volume control did work on my old Panasonic Viera TV but quit. I expect it stopped working because of some programming change or simply because the Premiere+ is no longer being supported. All other functions continue to work fine. Is there any way to get it to work again?
