Can I upgrade to a remote that has a mute function without buying a new Roku?

Jump to solution

I have a Roku Streaming Stick with the voice command feature but there's no mute button on the remote, which I want. Can I just upgrade to a mutable remote without buying a whole new setup?

Yes, if your stick uses a rc-al2 remote now, it work work with rc-al7r that has a mute key.

I see a reply stating rc-al2 and re-al7r are possible up grades.  My system is Roku Premiere.  The remote only has basic functions and I would like to upgrade the remote to have on/off button, volume control etc

Yes the premiere can upgraded from its IR remote to wifi remote. Ypu get them atr walmart for $19.88 or best buy for $29.99. It will be the rc-al7r. You order it from Roku:

But its on backorder under streamers, but the same remote is available under roku tv's:

Its the exact same remote, the rc-al7.

Thanks. How do I tell if I have a rc-al2 remote now? Is that information on my Roku box somewhere or maybe the remote itself?

Remote model numbers are generally inside the battery compartment.

I mentioned the rc-al2 remote responding to OP who said they had a roku stick, just being sure it wasn't a 3500 stick, in which there is no replacement remote with a mute key or without. If your roku has a IR remote, it probably can be paired to a wifi remote with mute key.
