Can Roku Remote Ever Be Used on Firestick...

Jump to solution

Hi All..

Is it possible on Roku that my Roku remote be used on Amazon Firestick, instead of always having to use the fire stick remote? Just curious. I saw some videos of people setting it up, but not sure if possible with Roku... Use any smart remote to control your firestick...

No, never, sorry. Fire stick allow tv remotes to control them, because they are linked to each other by hdmi cable. Where hdmi-cec signals sent of the hdmi cable allow it to be controlled via tv remote. If you're speaking of a roku tv remote, and having the fire stick attached to the roku tv, the remote will be controlling the tv, and will never send hdmi-cec signals to fire stick. A non-roku tv might, because its feature of that brand of tv, but it isn't a feature of roku tv.
