Re: Cant use roku Tv

I don't believe the Roku TV remotes need to be paired. Both of mine are IR only. Make sure you have line of sight with the TV when using the remote.

It depends on the brand of Roku TV. TCL sells Roku TV's through Best Buy that support IR line of sight remote only. Same TCL Roku TV on Amazon for a slightly higher price comes with a WiFi remote. Same exact TV's, just different remote.

Interesting. I wonder if the Amazon page is accurate. My Insignia (small 720) and Sharp (4K) Roku TVs are both IR control. Unfortunately, the Wiki page for Roku doesn't discuss the hardware for Roku TVs, only the stand alone players.
