The gaming remote is the same remote that came with the roku 3. Its wifi, with headphone jack remote. But has no IR tv controls. The $19.99 voice remote is wifi and can control the tv power and volume, no headphone jack. There's the Enhanced Voice remote for $29.99, headphonre jack, wifi, and has tv controls.

I see that the accessories page has the enhanced voice remote as officially compatible with Roku 4+ only, but @Tivoburkee you mention it here and in another thread.

Has anyone tried pairing one of these with a Roku 3 (4230 series) ? Which functions should I expect would and wouldn't work? Headphone jack work?

Following up to mention, ended up purchasing the Enhanced Voice Remote and it works great with Roku 3, despite not being officially compatible. Headphone jack, TV buttons, programmable shortcut buttons all work. The only feature that seems to be missing is the lost remote beep locator (of course, since the 3 doesn't have a hardware button for it).
