I actually can't tell if it's a RC-193 (as indicated by the About section for the remote on the Roku) or RC-AL4 (as indicated by the model number on the chewed remote). All I know is it came with my Roku Ultra.
What's the cheapest replacement. It doesn't even need voice - just the volume controls were handy, and the ability to not have to point to a TV was nice. Will the newer enhanced remotes work with a Roku 2 (4210X). Thanks.
If I recall correctly, the $19 Roku Voice Remote is a BlueTooth device while the $29 Roku Gaming Remote is a WiFi Direct device. It may be possible the model 4210 Roku does not do BT pairing in favor of being designed to only do WiFi direct or InfraRed.
Make sure you found both batteries or if you haven't then take the dog to the vet. Batteries are extremely toxic!

The only Roku player that used Bluetooth was the 2 XS (very old, and now unsupported player), so there's no voice remote that uses BT. The Voice Remote, Enhanced Voice Remote and Gaming Remote all use WiFi Direct, although I believe they also support IR use. The Standard IR Remote is IR only.
According to the Roku wiki page, the model 4210 is IR only, so while the voice remotes may work to control the player, the voice function won't work, as that requires WiFi Direct support.

I do know that my Roku 2 4210X does support wifi-direct (it was paired and obviously worked without having to point at it) as well as the voice functionality, as my kids use it all the time. This particular remote came from a Roku Ultra that I had purchased (and since shuffled the remotes around). I was just looking for the cheapest replacement.
It sounds like the $19 voice remote should work fine, as long as it is in fact wifi-direct as well. Thanks!
