How to connect my Xfinity remote to Roku tv

Does anyone know how to connect my Xfinity remote XR15 to my Roku TV? I tried all the numbers and the only thing that worked was the volume button and power button. Please help

Re: How to connect my Xfinity remote to Roku tv

Roku tv's do not accept 0-9 keys from ANY remote, sorry. Roku tv's use a very old tv code sets that's why almost any remote that can be programmed for tv's will partially control them. Except ten key pad, the tv's on purpose do not respond to those commands. So stop looking for them.

So I just got a Roku express to use to get rid of my cable box with Xfinity. I have to download the xfinity app to watch live tv using the roku. Are you saying that there isn't a remote out there to use if I wanted one to use for the numbers 0-9?

Sorry, but yes. No remote with number keys will work on the Roku tv. Anyways Roku express only uses a Roku code set, the unlike Roku tvs that use tv code sets, you won't find any remote with 0-9 commands in a Roku code.

I did them same. It’s frustrating you cannot change channels using a number pad on that Xfinity remote. You have to scroll thru the channel list. That’s a big negative for me.
