Best Non-Harmony Universal Roku Remote?

Bought a new Roku Express for the bedroom and I despise the cheap-o five ounce Roku remote it came with. It also does not handle my TV power nor volume for the Samsung LCD in the bedroom.

What's the latest and greatest universal remote that works with the Roku? I have a Roku Ultra with the high end Harmony with Harmony Hub in the living room (and it works great) but I don't want to spend that kind of money for the bedroom.

Looking for recommendations for a typical ~$20 universal remote that is physically bigger than the Roku remote, and has full functionality for all the Roku buttons like the Back arrow and Home button (except the ad buttons, I never use those).

Any suggestions on what's out there and what actually works? Been to several sites and read many amazon reviews but can't find that right one yet. Thanks!

Re: Best Non-Harmony Universal Roku Remote?

You have the Inteset 422-3:


Or the One-For-All urc-7880



Each allows for use the discrete commands in the form of advanced codes or efc's, which are 5 digit codes for individual functions like the ad buttons, say you want disney+ on a key the code would be 00070. You take that code map it to key like so:


1. press and hold set?magic for two blinks release

2. enter 9 9 4

3. tap set/magic for one blink

4. enter 0 0 0 7 0

5. pick unused key
