Can an Enhanced Remote be used with a Roku Express (3930X?

I have two TVs that primarily get used when the grandchildren stay over night.  They just need to get to YouTube and Netflix.

I just replaced 2 older Rokus with 2 new Roku Express(s).  After installation, I realized the remotes no longer turn on or off the TV too. 

I did the research and read about some of the models the on/off function is on.  What I couldn't find, however, is whether the old enhanced remotes I have can work with the new Express devices.

Should I just toss the old remotes or is there some magic to making them work with the Express boxes?

Thanks.

Even though the express 3930 came with IR remote, it can be paired to wifi-direct remote with tv controls. What are the model numbers of these older enhanced remotes, if they were remotes included with roku older then your express, it won't work on the express, a wifi remote with model of RC-AL2 or RC-AL7 is what you need to get tv controls for the express 3930.

Thanks.  Both of the 'old' remotes are model RC-AL2.  

I'll see if I can find out how to pair the remotes.

Thanks for your help.
